How to Help
Even if you’ve never done a bird survey, we can use your help
If you’re just getting interested in birds, we can really use your help running a point count route with a high-quality stereo recording unit. We’ll post more information soon, but in the mean time, please contact the coordinator for more information.
Our Census Plot and Point Count programs operate within the Ottawa Bird Count study area.
There are opportunities for birders and non-birders alike
If you’ve done point counts before and you’d like to do more, then send us an email. Put some of those finely honed, point count skills to good use! If you’re a keen birder and/or you’ve helped out with the Atlas, the Christmas Bird Count, the Fall Count, or any of the other regular counts you’ll enjoy adopting a pair of census plots. If you have a friend who’s more experienced or you know someone who’d like to improve their bird skills, team up and adopt a group of survey plots that you can do together.
