How can I participate in the count?

Field Counts

  • The Annapolis Royal circle has been divided into sub-areas, for individuals or small groups conduct surveys

  • When possible, we aim to pair new birders with experienced CBC participants. 

  • Observation sheets, which include space to record party effort, species, weather, contact information, rare bird reports, etc., will be provided to each team. 

  • There is no fixed amount of time that must be spent on a field survey. We ask that groups try to cover their area as fully as possible. 

Feeder Watch 

  • Anyone living within the Annapolis Royal circle can conduct a feeder watch from home. 

  • There is no set time that must be spent watching the feeder. You can break up the count into a series of small segments. Counts are based on the largest number of any species seen at a single time.
