Join Larry Cowan and members of Nature Vancouver on this half-day outing to find American Dippers in the Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge area. Birders have been successful since 2006 finding this quarry. After locating a Dipper or two, they will spend the balance of the morning birding the Pitt Meadows/Maple Ridge area in search of raptors, waterfowl, other winter migrants. Meet at 09:00 in the McDonald’s parking lot on the SW corner of Lougheed Hwy & Harris Rd. in Pitt Meadows for car pooling.

BMN has been participating in the Tri-Cities portion of the Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC) for the past 24 years, and we’ll be out again this year, rain or shine, by foot, car and possibly by boat. You will be assigned to a team that is sent to one of 14 Areas (e.g., Colony Farm, Como Lake, Inlet Park, Lafarge Lake, along the Coquitlam River). You can also participate by watching your feeders that day if your yard is located within the count circle. The event begins at 8:00 am. Depending on the assigned area, groups may be out for two to eight hours.
To sign up for CBC-2018, please contact us by email, or phone Victoria at 604.937.5379.
A summary of our local Christmas Bird Count (held on Jan 5th 2019), with highlights of what was seen and how many of them, will be presented. There’s friendly competition between teams of birders, and the wrap-up evening is always fun. Back by popular demand is presenter John Reynolds. Also at this meeting will be the judging and awarding of prizes for the photography contest that accompanies the Christmas Bird Count.
The evening will kickoff with a brief presentation by Graham Sorenson, BC Projects Coordinator with Bird Studies Canada, on participating in Coastal Waterbird Surveys.
