The project aims to increase capacity among South-eastern NB watershed groups and forest technicians to identify woodland birds. In the spring of 2018, Roland Chiasson of Aster Group provided training sessions on identifying woodland bird habitats and behaviors. He developed a woodland bird species identification guide, using bird calls, videos and images to teach woodland bird identification during the sessions.
Roland Chiasson conducted forest visits to provide follow-up support to those who participated in the training sessions, including technicians from Les Ami(e)s de la Kouchibouguacis, Southeastern Anglers Association, the Pays de Cocagne Sustainable Development Group, the Shediac Bay Watershed Association, Vision H20, EOS Eco-Energy, and the Petitcodiac Watershed Alliance. All bird data collected will be submitted to the Atlantic Canada Conservation Data Centre. Overall, the project seeks to enhance the protection of biodiversity in South-eastern New Brunswick.

The Pays de Cocagne Sustainable Development Group would like to thank the New Brunswick Wildlife Trust Fund, as well as watershed groups of southeastern New Brunswick for their time in the field and sharing their knowledge.
