On this beautiful July 8 morning, I participated (as a volunteer) on the monthly bird count of the Stanley Park Ecology Society. Aside from allowing all participants to appreciate the wonder of having such a magnificant natural area minutes from downtown Vancouver, BC (Canada), this count allows to have a reliable measure of how the Stanley Park’s bird population is doing.

I would like to take this occasion to thank SPES and in particular, its Conservation Officer, Robyn Worcester, for holding this event every month since 2006. It is highly appreciated by all participants.
You can find out more about SPES, its mission and activities and of course about Stanley Park here: http://stanleyparkecology.ca/
See you in August, life permitting!
