During 2014, species within the circle, on the patch and in the garden came in as follows …

For the record, I am keeping four separate but overlapping local patch lists …

  • The Garden is self explanatory
  • The Morgan Arboretum
  • The Wildlife Circle is an 8km diameter circle centred on the garden – all walkable or bikeable (on a good day) – see http://sparroworks.ca/wildlifing/?page_id=22
  • West Island Plus is a flexible area (and the least green), being the West island of Montreal more or less from Blvd-St-Jean westwards and includes  a few choice spots off the island within about a 20 minute journey … still very local.

 

 Canadian 2014 year list up to the latest update of this page = 149  (World list – 199)
  • Garden species = 59  (55% of 107 life list for site)
  • West Island Plus = 138 (70% of 194).
  • Wildlife circle species = 121 (68% of 172)
  • Morgan Arboretum = 98 (74% of 134)
 UK Birds
  • 55 species, mostly seen in April

 

The eBird list for the “West Island Plus” patch is:

The birds are listed by date in the order they were first seen since the beginning of the year
