Ottawa Gatineau Christmas Bird Count 2020 - Sunday, Dec 20

(Theme 4 – Habitat)

Organization: Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club (OFNC)

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing Annual Event – Sunday, Dec 20 2020 All Day


The Birds Committee organizes the Ottawa contribution to the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count.

This North-America wide birding tradition started in 1900 and the OFNC has participated continuously since 1920. In recent years the OFNC partnered with the Club des ornithologues de l’Outaouais in this effort. The Ottawa-Gatineau Count usually takes place in mid-December and involves teams of volunteers who spend most of the day outdoors tallying species and numbers of birds within a 7.5 mile (12 km) radius of the Peace Tower. Other volunteers contribute by noting the birds that come to their backyard feeders on the day of the count.

There are a number of nearby counts that touch on the OFNC 50 km. study area.
