Weekly Species Lists

Each week, on Sunday morning, we start a species checklist and throughout the week, species are seen by various people and reported, with the results then amalgamated into a weekly list of bird present.. Normally, this list has been posted in the Gift Shop Window every weeek to give visitors an idea of what is in the general area. We began posting the weekly lists on the Sanctuary website during the 2020 Sanctuary closure as visitors were kept out of the Sanctuary for four months and obviously could not look at a list posted at the Gift Shop. The British Columbia Waterfowl Society made the decision to close the Sanctuary at the end of the business day on March 15th 2020 because of the Coronavirus pandemic and the Sanctuary re-opened July 14th. During the closure period, staff and select volunteers kept up the species record system, and continued making weekly species lists so that there would not be a gap in our bird records.

2020 Species lists March onwards
