Event: Breeding Bird Survey, Saturday, 8am, The Pony

Eagle-eyed birdwatchers (and eagle watchers, too) can rub shoulders with birders from the BC Ornithologists, who are sending a delegation to Pemberton on Saturday, to help with the breeding bird survey.

Bring water, sunhat, binoculars and sharp eyes. Car pool to help keep things streamlined along the route. Meet at 8am at the Pony parking lot. The first stop will be in Mount Currie, where the group hopes to get a glimpse of some Bullock’s Orioles.

Pemberton’s bird specialist, John Tschopp, shared some pictures of the exotic birds from a recent trip in Oriole country on the Thompson River.

(You can also pick up a Birds of Pemberton checklist from 2012, at the Library/Community Centre.)
