2007 will mark the 90th anniversary of Bird Protection Quebec, and in celebration of its history and the people who helped shape us, we’re inviting you to participate in our Big Year of Birding.

The year-long event will take the form of competitions in which Quebec residents, as well as any member of Bird Protection Quebec, can compete for prizes.

Whether you’re an experienced or a novice birder, the variety of categories ensures that there’s a place in it for you! You are welcome to compete individually or in small teams.

Prizes will be presented in the following categories:

The Big Year – Most species in a year (two categories: adult and age 17 and under)
The Big Month – Most species in a month
The Big Day – Most species in a day
The Big Sit – Most species from a static location (during Victoria Day weekend)
The Backyard List – Most species in your backyard
Most New Lifers – Most news species added to your Life List
