Le Grand Défi 2016

Le Nichoir’s volunteers have teamed together to participate in the Grand Défi QuebecOiseaux. Show your support of our volunteers by making a pledge!

The Grand Défi

Is a friendly birding competition and fundraiser where 50% of the funds raised support Le Nichoir’s programs, and the other 50% support wild bird conservation projects initiated by Regroupement QuebecOiseaux protecting threatened species such as the American Kestrel, Barn Swallow, Cliff Swallow and Purple Martin


Each team must observe as many bird species as possible from a fixed location over a 24-hour period from 6 p.m. May 6 to 6 p.m. May 7 including over night

Le Nichoir’s Goal

Our goal is to raise $1,000 and observe 50 different species of birds.

Reason for Participation

Not only is this a fundraiser for the Centre, it is our way to contribute to wild bird conservation on a larger scale

Supporting Le Nichoir’s team

Make a pledge! The pledge can be made based on an amount per species observed by our team over the 24-hour period or, a fixed amount to support our participation. Donations in any amount are welcome.
