Galiano Christmas Bird Count


Sunday, December 17, 2017 - 8:00am

The annual Galiano Christmas Bird Count sponsored by the Galiano Naturalists is on Sunday, December 17. To make the count we divide the island into about 20 count areas, each with a small team of counters who go out and tally the number of individual birds and number of species observed in that area on the Count Day. Other people (“feederwatchers”) count the birds at their feeders and in their yards. It’s easy and fun, so if you would like to participate this year, please email or phone Mike Hoebel at 250-539-2003.
