NOVICE

Raptors and a host of other birds migrate north along the Red River and Pembina River valleys in early spring. Come join the birders who monitor this migration. They will be present from mid-morning at either site on most days from mid-March to mid-April, especially when it is sunny with a south wind. The St. Adolphe site is on the east side of the bridge on PR. 210. The Windygates site is on PR. 201 at the Pembina River Valley. Watches are not scheduled, so there is no need to register. Come and go as you please.

Manitoba harbours a fine array of shorebirds, sometimes in spectacular concentrations, and they will soon start to return from warmer climes. Of the 41 species on the Manitoba list, 11 breed in southern Manitoba (including some more widespread species), 11 breed in northern Manitoba, 11 are passage migrants (do not breed in the province), 6 are rare, 1 extirpated and 1 probably extinct. Shorebirds are often considered difficult to identify, but with the help of this workshop, the task may become a bit easier. In addition to identification, we will discuss shorebird monitoring in Manitoba and how you can get involved; also some tips on how to find shorebirds and some of the best places in the province to see them.
