Want to help?
The species list, as well as the abundance and occurrence codes, will be continually updated with the knowledge we gain from the growing number of dedicated birders in the area.
- If you encounter a rare bird or a bird that isn't on the list, make sure to note the date, time and location as well as details on the species and habitat, including photos and recordings if possible and contact us.
- If you encounter a bird on the OBRC Central Review List, please let us know and fill out the form on the OBRC page.
- When out birding, make sure the birds' well being is always the top priority: do not cause disturbance, do not disclose location of nesting birds or roosting owls, etc. and respect private properties at all time.
A sincere thank you to all who made this possible: MRCA and Wintergreen Funds for Conservation, the original members of the Timmins Naturalists and Mark Joron who have collected data over the past decades, Larry Labelle who drew the wonderful logo, the generous donors who helped us print the list, the birding community who helped us revise the historical data, and all the people who have contributed their sightings over the years!
