Another Day Birdwatching

How I spent my Sunday Morning getting involved in

“The International Shorebird Survey (ISS) in Manitoba – an Encouraging Start”

“Many readers will recall two excellent reports from Sabina and Lynnea, describing a workshop we attended in May. The Workshop was organised by Manomet, NCC, Environment and Climate Change Canada, BSC, and ourselves, and was hosted by NCC at their Jiggin’s Bluff property in the Oak Lake and Plum Lakes IBA. It also included a trip to Whitewater Lake IBA. Our ultimate goal was to establish the International Shorebird Survey (ISS) in Manitoba, and this blog covers the first ever shorebird surveys delivered as part of this program.”

 

Taking part required getting up at 5:00am to drive to the rendezvous point. Anyone who knows me knows just how difficult that is for me. But we did it and it was great!
