The Manitoba Breeding Bird Atlas ( is heading into its 5th and final summer and is seeking a few more skilled canoeists and/or birders to assist in a series of canoeing and hiking expeditions in northern Manitoba in June and early July 2014. These expeditions generally involve 2 – 6 people and range from 7 – 18 days in length. These trips offer some truly fantastic wildlife watching and a unique wilderness experience, not to mention a plethora of boreal and tundra birds; however, we generally need people who can handle rugged conditions.

Canoe routes which I seen reports for and which we may want to try this summer include the Burntwood River, Barrington River/South Seal, or the Little Churchill/Churchill River. If you feel you might be available or are interested in participating, please get back to me

Also, if you will be heading on a canoe trip in Manitoba and think you may be available to do some atlassing, please let us know. Thanks

Sounds pretty cool. I've shared this with a few paddling friends that may be interested and would have contacts of their own to share with.

It would be great to trip with some birders that could maybe teach me a thing or two. Although a biologist, I've never been that good at id'ing birds - especially the little brown birds. Ever since I bombed that job interview with DU some 22+ years ago I've been trying to learn and now seem to be forgetting as quickly as I learn. I'm better with the 6-legged critters.
