This is the project's fourth report, for the period 31 July - 10 August 2013 from Little Piskwamish Point on the south coast of James Bay. The Little Piskwamish Point crew consists of Mark Peck (Royal Ontario Museum), Don Sutherland (Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources), Ron Ridout (Bird Studies Canada), Burke Korol (Canadian Wildlife Service), Mark Field (volunteer) and Jeffrey Costa (volunteer).

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: The Western James Bay Shorebird Survey is a cooperative effort spearheaded by the Canadian Wildlife Service, Royal Ontario Museum , Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (OMNR), Bird Studies Canada and Moose Cree First Nation. Additional support for the 2013 expedition was provided by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation. The OMNR also provides helicopter transport to and from field camps and accommodations in the staff house while crews are in Moosonee. Thanks to Ken Abraham, Rod Brook, Sarah Hagey and Kim Bennett of OMNR for logistical support. Lastly, without the many hours of dedicated volunteer support, this project would not be possible.

 

Good birding,
