We’re expecting a very busy year! Le Nichoir’s bird care season typically begins in May. You can imagine our surprise when we realized that the Centre admitted birds on a regular basis throughout the whole of 2020. Since January 2021, our team has cared for 60% more birds than during the same period in previous years. If this is any sign of what’s to come, we expect to be kept on our toes this summer.

Luckily, Le Nichoir has added a new full-time member to the team. Emily Fancelli has joined us as our new Administrative Coordinator. Studying Administration at Concordia, she brings fresh ideas and new skill sets. We warmly welcome Emily to the Le Nichoir team and hope you will have the opportunity to meet her.

Due to the pandemic, Le Nichoir has been unable to accept visitors. We miss you! Weiyi Liu, our Bird care Coordinator, has organized a virtual behind-the-scenes tour for Saturday, June 5. This bilingual tour will last up to an hour and will cover the entire operations of Le Nichoir (indoors and out). Registration is required. You can register here.

To better keep in touch with our community, our volunteers and staff produce regular communications about Le Nichoir’s activities. We have created a survey to collect feedback on what information is most important to you and what content you would like to read in the future. Please take the time to let us know your thoughts by completing the survey here.

As we continue to celebrate our 25th anniversary, please visit our website and social media pages (Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn) for more information on our upcoming Festival of Birds and Nature (August), our golf tournament (September 27th) and more!
