Peterborough Christmas Bird Count – Sunday, December 15
Participants should let Tony Bigg know as soon as possible if they are available for this count. The compilation will be at Kelsey’s, opposite the Canadian Tire plaza on Lansdowne St. at 5:00 p.m. Newcomers to the area, and newcomers to birding, are welcome to participate. They will be partnered with more experienced local birders. More eyes result in more birds seen! This count is an all-day affair starting at daylight, or preferably earlier if you wish to add owls. Contact Tony at or phone 705-652-7541.
