Lanark Highlands Christmas Bird Count 2018

Lanark Highlands Christmas Bird Count 2018

(Theme 4 – Habitat)

Organization: Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing Annual Event on Dec 30, 2018


A tradition is continuing this holiday season as volunteers gear up for the 16th annual Lanark Highlands Christmas Bird Count.

Data from the count is sent to Bird Studies Canada, where it forms a definitive record of bird species in the area.

Four counts are taking place this year: near Carleton Place, Rideau Ferry, Pakenham, and the Lanark Highlands.

Each will cover a circular area with a radius of about 12 km, and each dedicates a single day to its count — the same day every year.

The Lanark Highlands Christmas Bird Count takes place on Dec. 30 and is open for volunteer registration.

If you know birds by sight or sound and would like to participate in this year’s count, please contact Marilyn Barnett to be added to her list for the December 30th, 2018 LHCBC.


For further information please contact compiler Cliff Bennett at or count coordinator Marilyn Barnett at
