July IBA Blitz – Red-headed Woodpeckers

Our next blitz will be looking for Red-headed Woodpeckers at the North, West and East Shoal Lakes. We found several pairs during a blitz in this area in August 2019 (see here). We will also look for other birds obviously, but our focus will be on this endangered species.

Please email iba@naturemanitoba.ca to express an interest in registering.

The Brandon Birders are also planning a search for Red-headed Woodpeckers, possibly on the same day at the Oak Lake and Plum Lakes IBA. Please email brandonbirders@gmail.com  to express an interest.

Finally, if you are interested in looking for Red-headed Woodpeckers in our other IBAs, we would be interested in hearing from you, especially from anyone living in or near the Kinosota-Leifur IBA.
