Surrey/White Rock





  • Have you ever wondered what birds are in your neighbourhood?
  • Are you looking to see a particular species?
  • Are you a "lister" who likes to keep track of all the birds you see?
  • Do you enjoy contributing to science and conservation?

If you answered yes to any (or all) of these questions, then you'll want to check out eBird! What is eBird you ask? It is a real-time program where you can share and view bird sightings online.
At Wild Birds Unlimited in North Vancouver, staff members report birds they see in front of the store on eBird. You too can report your bird sightings from your yard, a local park, or just about anywhere you see birds.

Find out more in store or on the eBird website.

Rare Bird Alerts

If you want a heads up on recent rare bird sightings or would like to report a rare bird the BC Bird Alert is a great resource.
