For those counting in Edmonton - HOW DO I DO IT?
Participants join their Zone Captain and watch and count the maximum number of birds for each species seen in the day. You may do this either as a Bush Beater, a Feeder Watcher, or as an Owl Prowler.
Bush Beaters: walk through the parks and streets within a defined area in their zone.
Feeder Watchers: record the maximum number of each bird species seen at any one time at their home. See instructions here.
Owl Prowlers: head out and watch or listen for owls at night and dawn.
Zone Captains will instruct new participants how to report results. Counts are compiled zone by zone through the Zone Captains at the Pot Luck dinner.
Final count numbers are sent to Bird Studies Canada and Audubon.
Results will be posted after the count on the Northern Alberta Birding Hotline 780-433-BIRD(2473).
