The Big Year
Kiah Jasper found himself attracted to serious birding at an early age. In his early teens he was involved with the outings organized by the Bruce Birders Club and within a few years was organizing outings for the club himself. Now, just out of his teen years, Kiah keeps a blog on birding, helps with the regular BBC outings, co-ordinates Christmas bird counts, and keeps up with rare bird sightings around the province. In 2022 he decided to see what he could accomplish in a “Big Year” effort, in which he would try to identify as many bird species as possible in a single calendar year within the province of Ontario. Come out to hear the story of how that went.
