Field Trips

All are welcome to participate in field trips. Invite your friends! Carpooling for out-of-town trips is arranged at the meeting place. There are no fees unless indicated; however, participants are expected to share gasoline costs and should make arrangements with the driver to do so. Phone the trip leader if you have any questions. Participants can return early if they wish. Members with CB or FRS radios should bring them on out-of-town trips. For information on city buses, phone 306-975-3100.

Fall Bird Count

Fall Bird Count

Saturday, September 11
Any Time

Registration Deadline: September 10

Citizen Science Volunteers Needed!

This citizen science event is organized by the
Saskatoon Nature Society.

Participants are needed to help survey the bird populations in the city and surrounding natural regions during the peak of fall migration. For this count, the rural area includes the area SE of the city that is east of the river and south of highway 5 including areas near Dundurn, Hanley, Clavet, Bradwell and Allan. The data provided by these annual bird counts helps detect changes in bird populations.

New participants are welcome and will be assigned to an experienced team leader or you may choose to just report birds seen on their property. Duration of count varies for different teams. You may participate all day or just during any part of the day. For covid safety reasons, we will not be encouraging car pooling this year.

To register, please provide your name, address or rural location, phone numbers and availability times in an email to

Data from previous counts was used in the writing of

Birds of the Saskatoon Area.

May Bird Count – May 29

We invite experienced birders who are healthy and not in quarantine to participate in the May Bird Count on Saturday, May 29. In order to follow COVID safe self-isolation steps, we plan to assign different birding sectors (or sub-sectors) to each individual or family so that they can participate on their own without any in-person contact with other participants. Birding Teams and car sharing outside family groups are not consistent with current public health recommendations.

If you wish to participate, please email and indicate your full name(s); phone number and email address. Please also indicate what hours you plan to participate, your preference (if any) for a rural or urban sector and whether you will have access to a car or wish to participate on foot near your residence.

John Patterson will be compiling the count. If you have questions, please phone Stan Shadick at 306-652-5975.
