We are now in the second year of the Third Ontario Breeding Bird
Atlas: an ambitious five-year effort to provide data that will guide
environmental policies and conservation strategies across Ontario for
years to come. Participation is easy and can be as simple as noting a
singing bird in your neighbourhood, or watching a bird with nesting
material. For more information, watch the introductory video on the
OFNC Facebook Group, visit https://www.birdsontario.org/ or contact
