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.
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 and May bird counts in our region. Watch for announcements on this page about these important count schedules.

2015 Birding Competition — Advance Notice! The competition will be similar to events in 2000 and 2005. Participants are out to identify the most species of birds within the Calgary city limits, and can compete in different age classes and experience classes. (You can read all about the 2010 event on the Birds Calgary 2010 blog). The main goal of the competition is to encourage more people, especially young people, to get involved in the Calgary birding community. Participants can also expect to learn a lot about the birds of the Calgary area and the many great locations to go birding here. Watch these pages or the Birds Calgary Blog for more information as planning proceeds this year.
