Each year, Ontario Nature member groups organize bird counts in their communities across Ontario as part of their holiday traditions. The annual Christmas Bird Counts (CBCs) are a festive holiday tradition welcoming birders of all skill levels.

The counts bring citizen scientists together to count as many different species, and individuals of those species, as possible over the course of a single day.

Join a bird count in your area this holiday season to contribute to bird research in North America.

 

The data collected help researchers and conservation organizations study the long-term abundance and ranges of birds across North America. Armed with this information, groups like Ontario Nature can effectively run and evaluate conservation activities.
