Bird Studies Canada

Data Center Description
Bird Studies Canada is recognized nation-wide as a leading and respected
not-for-profit conservation organization dedicated to advancing the
understanding, appreciation and conservation of wild birds and their habitats,
in Canada and elsewhere, through studies that engage the skills, enthusiasm and
support of its members, volunteers, staff and the interested public. Bird
Studies Canada conducts programs in the Long Point area through the Long Point
Bird Observatory and the Long Point Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Fund.

Bird Studies Canada has been running regional programs for many years,
beginning with the Ontario Bird Feeder Survey, launched in 1976, which later
became the continental Project FeederWatch program. Wherever possible,
regional projects have a large, and very important, volunteer component.
Current projects in Ontario include the Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring Program
and the Nocturnal Owl Survey. Programs in British Columbia include the British
Columbia Coastal Waterbird Survey and the British Columbia Nocturnal Owl
Survey. In the Atlantic Region, the Atlantic Canada Nocturnal Owl Survey
begins this year.

Bird Studies Canada also conducts research nationally through volunteer-based
surveys such as the Canadian Lakes Loon Survey and Project FeederWatch. In
addition, it coordinates the analysis of data collected by a growing network of
observatories monitoring migratory birds across Canada
