Welcome to the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation in Northern Alberta. This is the only educational and research facility in the world strategically located to study boreal birds on their breeding grounds. Next door to the main building is ‘The Nest’ which offers an amazing comfort camping experience. It is a beautiful cabin with room for ten guests, and Canada’s great wilderness at your door-step. I snapped this photograph the other day as I walked from this building to the Lesser Slave Lake Bird Observatory, taken in surreal Autumn views of the lake and its surrounding. So peaceful.
