Sponsor Team Le Nichoir and le Grand Défi May 9-10 Last year, Team Le Nichoir participated for the first time in le Grand Défi and despite a cold wet day, was able to observe 46 species and ranked 8th overall for the total amount of money raised to support bird conservation. Can we break our record? We believe we can! But, we need your help. The Grand Défi Quebec Oiseaux is a friendly competition and fundraiser for bird conservation involving birders from across the province. The rule: observe as many bird species as possible from a fixed location over a 24-hour period from 6 p.m. May 9 to 6 p.m. May 10. Our goal this year is to raise $1000 and observe 50 species. Sponsoring our team is easy. You can pledge an amount per species observed by our team over the 24-hour period or, a fixed amount to support our participation. Québec Oiseaux has made it easy to show your support. Make your pledge via the following link and you will be billed by email after the event.

The Grand Défi finished last week. Spared by the rain but tossed by the winds, team Le Nichoir managed to observe a total of 49 bird species, 3 more than last year. The Wilson’s snipe and the American bittern welcomed us again this year and the marsh wren, the wild turkey and the American woodcock added themselves to our list. In the end, our team scored 8th in fundraising with $1,103.Thank you for your support!
