Birding in Abercorn

The Bird Day in Abercorn was a success. We learned about birds about each other and enjoyed a beautiful day in Abercorn.  Thanks again to the organizer François Cusson. We are planning on repeating the event next summer. Here is some feedback from participants to help us plan for next year:

“I really enjoyed yesterday’s activity. I think Jason is really well informed and an excellent presenter.
I enjoyed painting the bird houses. Making them was quite a challenge.. I know it would be a lot more work for you to pre make the bird houses but I think just decorating them would be sufficient for me.
Perhaps next year the marshes could be explored, I imagine there are different birds there. Especially a bit earlier in the summer.

Thank you for organizing it. Great idea.”

“Merci beaucoup pour cette belle journée!
Nous avons appris beaucoup en construction, ornithologie et fait de nouveaux amis.
L’animateur Jason était passionnant et passionné de même que Rebbeca enthousiaste et chaleureuse.
Bonne idée de pré couper le bois et préparer chaque cabane!! Cela a évité bien des problèmes aux amateurs que nous sommes…
Nous avons été bien guidé dans cet apprentissage par toi et Monsieur le maire!
Nous aurions aimé en savoir plus sur la hauteur des cabanes et la grosseur des trous selon les espèces d’oiseaux.
Manque de temps j’imagine.
Merci encore et bravo pour l’organisation de cette superbe journée!”
