An awesome event!

Yesterday’s Birdathon event was awesome!

We had birders in three provinces! Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Ontario.

We finished with 101 species seen, and a good time was had by all! Check out the list (and some images) below.

Although we’ve already gone birding, the Birdathon fundraising continues until the end of the year so if you haven’t got your donation in yet, there’s still time!

The Bird-a-thon is the only fund-raising event we undertake, so if you are interested in donating, you can find our Bird-a-thon page at: We will be accepting donations until December 31st. and we do issue tax receipts.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far, we truly appreciate it, and thank you to our wonderful birders!
