NOTE: Because of the torrential rain scheduled for this weekend, we will begin our bird-watching marathon on May 20 instead.
For the 5th year, Le Nichoir will participate in the Grand Défi QuébecOiseaux where Jo-Annie Gagnon and our volunteers will observe as many bird species as possible within a 10 metre circle for 24 hours starting at 6 pm on May 5. A bird-watching marathon!
This event, now in its seventh year, brings together all levels of birders from across the province to help raise awareness and funds for wild bird and habitat conservation.
This year our team aims to observe 55 different species of birds, 5 more than last year.
To reach that goal, some of the team members will spend the night under the stars, hoping to add the nocturnal birds like the Barred Owl or the American Woodcock to the list.
