Kahnawakehronon invited to join the Annual Christmas Bird Count Saturday


The Kahnaw�:ke Environment Protection Office (KEPO) would like to inform the community that they will be leading Kahnaw�:ke�s participation in the annual Christmas Bird Count this Saturday, December 17, 2022. Kahnawa�kehr�:non interested in participating in this year�s bird count are asked to contact KEPO to register (contact information below). Copies of the new Kanien�k�ha Bird Field Guide are available for participants. 

Two teams will begin at sunrise, continuing until late afternoon, and cover specific areas in the community. The Inland Team will be in the areas of Big Fence, Tekakwitha Island, green spaces along the Seaway, old railroad tracks, Tower Road, the golf clubs along the 207, and common lands near Highway 30.

The Seaway Team will be in the area of the North Wall from the Ste. Catherine locks to the end of the Kahnaw�:ke land base. 

The teams will be instructed to stay on the main roads described above so as not to disturb homeowners or private properties.

KEPO has participated in the Bird Count for many years and supports this initiative which gathers valuable bird population data both locally and across Turtle Island. This will be the first year that the Kanien�k�ha /English Bird Field Guide is available to participants. Bird Protection Quebec has been conducting the Annual Christmas Bird Count for 87 years in the Montreal area. The area covered by this survey is a 24-km wide circle centered in Montreal West.
