We still have room for people who would like to participate in this year's BPQ Montreal Christmas Bird Count on Saturday, December 21st. Novice birders right through to seasoned veterans; it doesn't make a difference. Binoculars, sharp eyes and ears, and you're set to go. We have a few teams out in the field that have space for a few more people, particularly in these following sectors:
Sector - Lasalle-Angrignon Park-Montreal West-Cote St-Luc - Bounded on west by Mercier Bridge and Highway 138 to Boulevard Norman in Ville St Pierre, the Railroad tracks east to the bottom end of the Meadowbrook Golf Course then by Radcliffe-Roxton, east to Westminster then along the Railroad tracks east to West Broadway, and on the east by West Broadway south via Rue Avon to St. Jacques then east to Cavendish and south to Blvd. Angrignon and des Trinitaires, Laverndrye and east side of Douglas Hospital
Sector - Cemeteries of Mount Royal
Sector - South-east Montreal - Bounded on the north by the Metropolitan Autoroute 40; on the east by St-Michel Blvd/Davidson; on the south by the St. Lawrence waterfront; on the west by the St-Denis Street.
If you would like to participate and any one of these areas is suitable or convenient to you, please get in touch with me (Sheldon Harvey - 450-462-1459 or e-mail) and we will get you set up with the sector leader.
The event runs from dawn to dusk, with a compilation party at the Montreal West Curling Club starting at 4 pm which all participants are invited to attend.
