The president of FOSS will host a family oriented Christmas bird count on December 26, 2016 for Colonel Sam Smith Park. This is a spur of the moment idea which was started because Bird Studies Canada does not have a circle which includes our park for a Christmas Bird Count.
The count is informal and will not be shared with Bird Studies Canada. It could become a tradition. Families or individuals just need to download these two files. One is the map of the park and the second is the counting form.
The count can be at any time of the day. You do not need to pick a zone on the map to count in, just count wherever you are in the park. Identify the zone(s) you are in on the form.
When completed, send the form to me by listing your birds in an email, (firstname.lastname@example.org) or scanning the count sheet and emailing the file, or printing it and mailing it to my address. Identify yourself and family if you wish or keep it private. I will tally the species and count and have a report placed on our FOSS website for all to see. Send a photo of a bird you identified on the 26th if you wish.
