Winter Birdwatching | Project FeederWatch


Every Friday and Saturday from November 18, 2016, to April 1st, 2017, join Les amis de la montagne as a volunteer observer for Project FeederWatch and take part in this winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders in Mount Royal Park.

Since 2005, Les amis de la montagne has been involved with Project FeederWatch, a winter-long annual survey of birds that visit feeders in nature centres, parks and other locations across North America. The mission of the “FeederWatchers” is to identify and note the species of birds they observe at the feeders. Those observations will then be used as a basis for scientific research to study bird populations.

Each birdwatching tour takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours depending on the number of feeders you choose to visit in the park. Equipment is provided by Les amis de la montagne. This is a great way to enjoy nature and winter in Mount Royal, while contributing to the advancement of scientific knowledge.
