Bird Wing is a branch of the Nipissing Naturalists devoted to the enjoyment and study of birds. All Club members are welcome to join Bird Wing for a nominal additional $5 membership fee.
Bird Wing meetings will continue on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 7:00PM, except December, but will be Zoom meetings for the time being. We hope to begin regular bird outings in the spring depending on how the pandemic progresses and by following any procedures/policies laid out by the Ontario government.

If you enjoy looking at birds in your backyard, and who wouldn’t, you should seriously considering signing up for Project FeederWatch if you have not already done so. It begins on Saturday, November 14, and continues through to Friday, April 9, 2021. All it entails is choosing 2 days a week and watching birds at your feeders or in your yard for as long or as short a period of time as you want during those days and then reporting what you saw online. (If you don’t or can’t join by November 14, not to worry, you can join anytime later over the next few weeks.) For detailed instructions on how to count birds for this project see: https://feederwatch.org/about/detailed-instructions/.
You have to become a member of Birds Canada to join, but the amount of your membership is up to you. (With a donation of $50 or more, you get Birds Canada’s BirdWatch Canada magazine.) To join, click on: https://www.birdscanada.org/you-can-help/project-feederwatch/.
