There are many resources for birders and naturalists in addition to the field trips and events hosted by the VNHS.
The annual Christmas Bird Count allow hobbyists and scientists to monitor population trends and to get just a little closer to nature during the Christmas season. You don’t have to be an expert birder to participate. Novices will be teamed up with more experienced counters. You can help out by acting as a tally person or as a spotter. If you are more experienced, and are wondering about leading a team, we have areas in need of coordinators.
Birders are encouraged to post their common and uncommon sightings to eBird.
Visit the British Columbia Rare Bird Alert at https://bcbirdalert.blogspot.com/ for more information on recent rare bird sightings in our region.
The BC Bird Trail was created by a group of folks inspired by British Columbia’s diverse communities, the natural landscapes that surround them, and the migratory birds that nest in our regions throughout the year.
