Spot 50 bird species and earn this lovely badge! You can either see them, or identify them by their songs. We also encourage you to upload your sightings to E-bird, as a form of Citizen Science.
The cost of participating is $10. This is primarily to cover the cost of the badge. If you wish to donate extra to the Friends of Frontenac, you have our thanks!
Start by registering here
You will need to record your sightings in this log or make your own log.
The information should include the date you spotted or heard the bird, the name of the bird (common or scientific, your choice), and the trail you saw the bird on. If you prefer to submit a hand-written log, that is perfectly acceptable, as long as it includes the information above.
The Birder Challenge does not have any start or finish dates; you can start when you want to, and finish once you have counted your 50.
Turn your log into the office once it is complete, and your $10, to collect your badge!
