Canadian Bird/Birding Groups

Especially in Canada, autumn is the beginning of fall migration any a busy time of year for many of us. One way to to learn about rare birds in your area or large concentrations of migrating species is through different forums, listservs, and Facebook groups. Luckily, there are some very good groups for the provinces and territories, below.

And for those provinces and territories without groups, it’s the perfect opportunity for a birder or group of birders to start one. I started a Facebook group for Alberta Birds in June 2012, and we’re now up to 2,019 members. It’s a great place for birders, naturalists, and photographers, and we also get a lot of members who plan to travel to Alberta for birding.
