Christmas Bird Count

2021 CBC

The 97th annual Toronto Christmas Bird Count will take place on Sunday December 19th, 2021.

As in previous years, the Count is organized into 26 sectors in the Toronto count circle, which constitutes a 24.2 km. radius circle in central Toronto. Each sector has a designated leader who is responsible for staffing the sector and reporting data. The Christmas Bird Count is an excellent opportunity for birders of varying experience to enjoy an organized day of winter birding. The day is traditionally followed, later in the afternoon, with a round-up where the bird observation results for the day are reported and recorded. However, this year, things will be a little different, and the round up will be on Zoom! Sector leaders will get the information on how to join and distribute to their participants. Designated sector leaders will be contacting participants directly. Anyone wishing to join the count and who has not been called by a leader, should contact Amanda Guercio at .
