2019 FOSS CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT IN COLONEL SAMUEL SMITH PARK


Volunteers needed!

How it’s done?


See the attached park map and link to the Winter Bird Count List for Colonel Sam Smith Park. Print the list.


Go out in to the park area shown on the map on December 26 (Boxing Day) and look for birds . Keep track of the time of day you visited the park, all the bird species you saw in the park or on the water as well as how many of each species you found. Send a list along to Brian at FOSS (see address below) so we can add them to the overall Christmas Bird Count. If the weather is poor on the 26th then use the 27th for your count.

Here is a link to a printable list for you to use for your count.

Try to send a photo with or without birds. We will try to place some of the photos on the FOSS website (no faces please)
Send your Bird Count to:  Brian Keaveney, President of FOSS, at masters@sympatico.ca by Dec. 28th.


You can scan your list and send the scan by email or just include the data in the body of the email. Results will be posted on the FOSS website.


Note: Bring a colour bird book with you to help identify birds or ask another birder that day.


Make it a fun family outing and stay warm
