2019 Christmas Bird Count Photos

Chickadees, Cardinals and Woodpeckers all made an appearance on our Gatineau birding expedition.

Nature Canada staff and friends headed out on a wintery Sunday morning Dec. 15 for the Christmas Bird Count in Gatineau. Highlights included Pileated Woodpeckers, colourful Cardinals and a fresh layer of snow covering every surface in the woods.

The annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a census of birds in the Western Hemisphere, performed each winter by volunteer birdwatchers who document the number of each species seen in a given area on a given day.
