Bird Studies Canada sponsors the James L. Baillie Bird-a-thon
to fund volunteer research projects in Ontario and other parts of
Canada for the benefit of
wildlife. Thanks to the efforts of hundreds of volunteers, over
$250,000 was raised last year from
this ambitious project. The monies are distributed to individuals
and groups who are working on
projects to protect, enhance and study bird populations.

I will be doing the Bird-a-thon in late May 2018 in support of
North Durham Nature. I'll be out
for about twenty-four consecutive hours looking for birds
between Ajax, Oshawa, Port Perry,
Kirkfield and environs. Annually I find in excess of 155 species
of birds and last year I found
exactly 155 species. But I can't do this without your financial
support. I believe in and support
these projects and would ask you to consider pledging your
support this year to help North
Durham Nature and the birds! You can donate online at:
