BIRDWATCH Canada Special Report
on Saskatchchewan Breeding Bird Atlas
I have just received by mail, my Spring 2017 copy of BIRDWATCH Canada magazine and the lead story is a special report on the launching of the first-ever Saskatchewan Breeding Bird Atlas.   Volunteers will be collecting observations in 6,900 10x10 km. squares in the province, creating a snapshot of bird distribution and relative abundance.   The initial effort will take five years to complete and will be repeated every 20 years.   Further information can be obtained at
Please comment if you wish.
