*The Nova Scotia Nature Trust’s “Bird’s Eye View” program*

The “Bird’s Eye View” program is a new, field-based, citizen science
volunteer program to engage bird watchers in the conservation work of the
Nova Scotia Nature Trust. The program provides opportunities to get out
bird watching on Nature Trust Conservation Lands in order to increase
knowledge about the bird species using them. For experienced birders, there
will be opportunities to go to properties being considered for protection,
and to gather some of the first biological data about these sites. All
participants in the program will be contributing to nature conservation in
Nova Scotia through citizen science, as well as improving their birding
skills. Participation is as simple as visiting one of the Nature Trust’s
glorious Conservation Lands, spotting birds and recording the species seen
and which habitats they are using, and entering findings online. To find
out more about the program, visit the program website (
www.nsnt.ca/birdseyeview) or contact the program coordinator, Karen
McKendry, at Karen[at]nsnt.ca.
