(2) Inspire people to become inquisitive, curious, discover, ask questions, and to explore the world around them.
(3) Get more individuals to focus their online time towards becoming Citizen Scientists by reporting what they see outside their window, in their local park, along a trailway, or when they are out bird watching.
Now with all of that said, you might be thinking ‘wow, an expert on birding, birds, and all things bird is coming to my community! This is what I have been waiting for, my life is now complete!’ But before you get too excited I will let you in on a secret...yes I worked at Bird Studies Canada, yes I know (in general) what birds look like, and yes in a pinch I can identify, name and talk about maybe 150 or 250 birds.... but beyond all of that I am by no means an expert on all birds across the nation. Which means that in Canada with approximately 685 different species of birds spread across a vast nation of varying geographies, landscapes, ecozones, and climatic regions most birds are pretty much beyond what I know.
