    Hello Linda. Would it be possible to advertise of the upcoming Golden Eagle migration count starting in September, in the Kananaskis area, in your Newsletter? It would be a new bird watching item for probably many Calgarians. Thank you!

    Call for Eagle Migration Count Assistant ​ Observers​

    The Annual Fall​ Migration Count ​of ​Golden Eagle​s ​and other raptors ​ will take place ​at Mount Lorette in the Kananaskis ​ from ​September 20​ ​to​ ​November 15​, 2016 ​.​ ​
