Several BMN members and friends have been conducting twice weekly bird counts along the walking trails that remain open to the public during Trans Mountain’s pipeline assembly work: the Colony Farm Road Trail that parallels the entrance road, and the trail just north of the Forensic Institute leading over to the worksite. We do timed surveys at seven stations along this route, identifying and counting all birds within 50m of each station. We’ve all learned a lot! And had lots of fun in the process. Victoria Otton and the Band of Birders will present some of the highlights so far.
