The Birders group meets on the first Thursday of each month, at 7:00 pm in the Soroptimist Lounge in the Florence Filberg Centre, 411 Anderton Ave, Courtenay. There are also occasional field trips.
Birders have a monthly meeting as well as occasional informal outings , once you are a member of CVN. This is a great way to learn bird identification, meet people, and explore new locales within the Comox Valley. Birders are also involved in several regular bird counts as well as Christmas Bird Counts. For more information contact Dave Robinson at robinsond51 at telus dot net.
There are three Bird Counts conducted by CVN: annual Spring count , annual Christmas count, and weekly Trumpeter Swan counts in winter.
Important Bird Areas program
Comox Valley is one of the most significant areas for wintering and migratory waterfowl and waterbirds in British Columbia and is very fortunate in having the Globally Significant K’omoks Important Bird Area (IBA) on its doorstep: www.ibacanada.com/site.jsp?siteID=BC272&lang=EN .
