Christmas Bird Count DataTimmins Ontario

In 1900, American ornithologist Frank Chapman asked birders across North America to head out on Christmas Day to count the birds in their home towns and submit the results as the first "Christmas Bird Census." His suggestion has evolved into one of the largest organized birding events in the world, and a holiday tradition during the Christmas season for over 50,000 birders each year.

Timmins Naturalists with support from the Wintergreen Fund for Conservation will participate in the112th Christmas Bird Count. This will be the 19th count that Timmins has participated in since 1988.

This year the field and feeder count will take place on Saturday December 21st, 2013. Our 24 kilometer count circle is centered at the junction of highway 655 and 101. MAP

For the field counters we leave Mike's by 8:00am with maps and tally sheets. We meet again at noon at Tim Hortons for those that are joining or leaving the field count.

For both the field and feeder counts a minimum of 4 continous hours is required.
