Christmas Bird Count for Kids 2017

Some of the WRN Kids families were part of the Christmas Bird Count for Kids at rare Charitable Research Reserve. This event was initially scheduled for a Saturday earlier in the month, but the ferocious wind-chill that day resulted in a postponement to a PD day on Friday, January 26, 2018.

They started out at the feeders behind the Eco Centre, where there were lots of birds.

It was a perfect winter's day, with the temperature hovering near the freezing mark, and everyone enjoyed walking the trails.

They heard a Northern Cardinal and eventually got some good views of it.

Back at the Eco Centre they gathered to write down their sightings and enjoy coffee and hot chocolate.
