Registration is now open until April 30 for:

  • Brooks-Lake Newell Bird Count (Sat. May 21 & Sun. May 22)
  • Writing-on-Stone Bird Count (Sat. May 28 & Sun. May 29)

This year our plan is to return to holding pre-count meetings on the Fridays before each weekend. At these meetings we will assign count areas, distribute maps and checklists, go over count protocols, introduce your fellow birders, and answer questions. Please plan to be there. We will also host informal gatherings on the Saturday evenings – a great opportunity to get together and swap birding stories! A full schedule for both weekends can be found in the attached brochure.

Because weather is sometimes inclement on the Brooks weekend, we have rented a meeting room at the Brooks Legion. We are asking each participant in the Brooks count to contribute $12.00 to cover the cost of this rental. If you plan to join the Brooks count, please e-transfer $12.00 per person to Donna Wieckowski astolat*@* Cheques and cash also accepted.* Thanks!

To register, click here: Brooks and Writing-on-Stone 2022 registration form. Register will close on April 30, 2022.

We will follow all Covid protocols in place at the time of the counts. Should restrictions not allow in-person meetings, we will assign count areas and distribute maps and checklists via email, as in 2021.

If you have any registration questions, or if you have trouble with the form, please email me. Happy to help!  Thanks for your support and happy birding!
