Island(s): 

Date: 
Saturday, December 9, 2017 - 2:00pm

As a tune up for those who plan to participate in the annual Galiano Christmas Bird Count on December 17, or anyone interested in our winter birds, there will be a bird identification workshop at the Galiano Library at 2:00 pm on Saturday, December 9th.

We'll review the kinds of birds to be expected on the Christmas Bird Count, including the various gulls, seabirds, waterfowl, thrushes, finches, sparrows, woodpeckers, corvids, raptors, etc.

Please email galianonaturalists@gmail.com or call Mike Hoebel (250-539-2003) if you will be attending this workshop on December 9th.

There will also be a follow-up bird walk to Montague Park at 10 am on Sunday, December 10 for those wanting to polish their ID skills in the field.
