  1. Great looking Blog, how do I submit photos?

    • As the site matures over the next few weeks club members will be invited to add content directly.

  2. Who can I get in touch with about getting your long-term Christmas Bird Count data into the Bird Studies Canada/Audubon database? There is no charge, and the data will be available for birders and biologists across the continent to use for bird population trends and other analyses. These long-term data sets are very rare, so it would make a big contribution. Ian Walker just sent me a graph of the House Sparrow data from Miramichi–very dramatic decline.

  3. Interested in joining!

    • Hello Clyde,

      Pleased to get your note. The Word Press web site is not particularly active. There is a Facebook page which is a little more so.

      We are having a meeting this coming Tuesday in Nelson. It is essentially an effort to see if we can operate under present conditions.
      If you send me an email at gadd1313@nb.sympatico.ca I can give you further details.

      Actually I think I will post an email I just sent a short time ago to the web site.
