Bird Studies Canada is looking for citizen scientists to contribute some time this winter and help with two large monitoring projects.
The British Columbia Coastal Waterbird Survey starts its 19th year on September 10. It is a citizen science monitoring program that involves counting ducks, loons, grebes, gulls, and other waterbirds once a month throughout the winter. Bird Studies Canada is also looking for Citizen Scientists to assist with the British Columbia Beached Bird Survey. This survey involves walking local beaches and checking for bird carcasses once a month.
