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,

Coordinator at Ottawa@birdsontario.org
