Count is for the birds

This event is for the birds – literally.

The 2018 swan and eagle count will be held Jan. 14 and birders of every feather are invited to attend.

The count is a citizen science program that is held every year in mid-January.

The North Okanagan Naturalists Club is involved in the count that monitors the population status of the large birds in the B.C. Interior.

The North Okanagan count zone covers nine routes throughout the area. Each route is covered by different groups fanning out to Sicamous, both ends of Mabel Lake and the Enderby area.

In the Vernon area, several groups scout the north and south ends of Kalamalka Lake as well as the Vernon arm of Okanagan Lake and the Head of the Lake area.

The count numbers will be compiled with others from the Interior to form a data base that is used in various bird research programs.

For more information, contact Aaron Deans, count co-ordinator, at 250-542-5122, or email at [email protected].
