I respectfully acknowledge that the land in and around Edmonton, Alberta where I will be embarking on birding every day for the month of May is located within the Treaty 6 region, the ancestral and traditional territories of the ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐤ ᐊᐢᑭᕀ Nêhiyaw-Askiy (Plains Cree), Ĩyãħé Nakón mąkóce (Stoney), Michif Piyii (Métis), Tsuut’ina, and Cree people.

I had been meticulously planning out the days that my husband and I could go birding this month, and as I was filling out the Google calendar I realized that there were only a small handful of days left that didn’t have “birding” listed. I decided to take a closer look at our schedules to see if there was any way that we could make the most of the unscheduled days and to my surprise, I noticed that we could potentially go out every single day.
My curiosity was piqued, could we really take on such a challenge? Without hesitation, I eagerly turned to Josh and posed the question to him. To my delight, he was just as enthusiastic as I was about this. With a rush of excitement, we both agreed; Let’s do this! Let’s go birding every day for the month of May! We were ready to take on the challenge and embark on having a “big month” of birding.
