CMMN Network Communications
A variety of communication tools have been developed to promote communication amongst the CMMN member stations, the bird research and conservation communities, and the public. Communications in English or French are encouraged, as much as practical.
Individuals associated with CMMN member stations, or otherwise interested in migration monitoring, are encouraged to explore and use the following communication tools and media:
Bird Studies Canada's NatureCounts website is the main public portal for accessing CMMN trend results, exploring CMMN data, and submitting data requests to the CMMN stations.
Individuals associated with CMMN stations can access additional resources by registering for the CMMN project on the NatureCounts website. Once your registration has been approved (usually within 48 h), you can logon to access the Resources section, which includes various CMMN documents, data entry software, copies of presentations, etc.
Instructions for registering for CMMN project on NatureCounts: Go to http://www.birdscanada.org/birdmon/cmmn/login.jsp and Register as a New User. If you are not already registered with NatureCounts for another project, you will need to set up a User profile with your user name, password, email address and station affiliation (if relevant).
The CMMN listserve is a Yahoo group for members of the CMMN and others with an interest in migration monitoring. For more information please review the CMMN Listserve Guidelines document. To subscribe to the CMMN listserve: send an email with ?subscribe? in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org
The CMMN Facebook page is an informal way for anyone interested in migration monitoring or the activities of the CMMN to stay up-to-date with events and recent sightings from across North America. It is an open group (membership is approved via two administrators), so all are welcome and encouraged to contribute.

The CMMN-RSCM Twitter feed gives stations the opportunity to post real-time updates to the main CMMN webpage and the Twittersphere. By following the CMMN-RCSM Twitter feed, member stations and affiliates will be kept up-to-date on CMMN-RCSM news and events. Items may include updates on events, publications, rare sightings from member stations, job postings and banding workshop announcements. Send potential tweets to email@example.com for posting and be sure to include @CMMNCanada or #CMMN-RCSM in any tweets related to your station or CMMN activities. ?
The Baillie Birdathon is Bird Studies Canada's annual fundraiser to support bird research and conservation. CMMN member stations are eligible for an enhanced share of revenues raised by anyone doing a Birdathon for their organization.
