Birdathon 2023

April 25, 2023

Please support the Bruce Peninsula Bird Observatory (BPBO) by sponsoring my Corvid 23 Team in Birdathon 2023. In late May I will raise funds for BPBO through the Great Canadian Birdathon. I will do two birdathons, one while volunteering at BPBO’s Cabot Head station the week of May 15, and a second time from my home in Gatineau. Both will be motorless.

A few of us established BPBO in 2001, thanks to an agreement with Ontario Park to use their Cabot Head Nature Reserve. We grew to over 100 members and supporters in the next few years. We restored the two abandoned cottages. One became Grebe Lodge – for observatory guests, and the other Wingfield cottage, home for the Station scientist and long-term volunteers. In the past few years BPBO survived COVID, major challenges with aging infrastructure, and a washed-out access road. Plus we are no longer are connected to the electricity grid, giving us no choice but to “go solar.” We depend on a small team of observers, headed by our Station Scientist Dr. Stephane Menu, supported by volunteers who come from all ends of the earth to spend a week or a month to help monitor the migration. Your donation helps pay for their lodging and meals.

Learn more about BPBO here, and sign up for the regular blog by Stephane.

Please support my Corvid 23 team with a healthy donation. My wife and I donated $250 to my birdathon last year. Any amount you contribute is deeply appreciated! Birds Canada will issue you a tax receipt for donations over $15. Our goal is to raise $4000!

I will share a post about my birdathon here on my own blog.
