About the Bird Study Group:

Nature Calgary’s Bird Study Group’s goal is to encourage birding in the Calgary area and beyond, by helping local birders develop their knowledge and skills. Our members are active local birders of all skill levels who are keen to share their knowledge and experiences. If you would like to be a BSG Advisory Group Member, check the Get Involved page or contact birdstudy@naturecalgary.com.

We meet on the first Wednesday of each month (except June, July, August) with speakers, announcements, and quizzes, all specifically about birds – and a chance to meet other birders over coffee and cookies. See the Events page for details.

Bird Counts: The Bird Study Group also organizes the Christmas Bird Count in our region, and members participate in the May Species Counts. Watch for announcements on this page about these important count schedules.

For more Calgary-area birding information, check our Birding Locations and Birding Resources pages.
