The Peterborough Christmas Bird Count (CBC), now in its 66th year, is the longest running wildlife survey in
Peterborough County. The Peterborough CBC participants cover an area contained within a circle with a diameter of
24 kilometers, centered on the intersection of Chemong Road and Sunset Boulevard. This total count area is divided
into smaller areas. A team of participants is assigned to each area.
Organization of the count is coming together and lots of members and friends of the PFN have registered to
participate. There is still room for more participants. There are 10 areas within the count circle, each of which will be
covered by a specific group of participants

The areas and Party Leaders are as follows:

  • Chemong/Bridgenorth Don McLeod
  • Miller Creek/Selwyn Brian Wales
  • Lakefield/Otonabee East Dave Milsom
  • Douro Wedge Warren Dunlop & Mike Oldham
  • Burnham Drew Monkman
  • Stewart Hall/Landfill Scott McKinlay
  • Airport Mike McMurtry & Matthew Tobey
  • Cavan Swamp Chris Risley and Erica Nol
  • Jackson Park Jerry Ball
  • Downtown to be determined

There is still time to register and participate in this Peterborough Birding Tradition and long-term Citizen Science
project. To register, contact Martin Parker (count compiler) as soon as possible by phone (705) 745-4750 or by e-mail
