Before really getting down to this circle project, I thought it would be helpful to have a baseline list of bird species that I know for certain I have seen in the area already.  As it grows with time, albeit all the “easy” ones have already been ticked, I will update this page. In fact, I am sure it could already be bigger had I spent more time in the past birding locally than haring off to distant sites and sightings … a plug for GreenBirding.

       Total bird species in the 8km circle =  at least 187 (as at June 2014)

Note – these are the species I have in my eBird database for a number of defined spots within the circle.  I am sure there have been more but they were seen before eBird came along or may have been lumped into a generic category such as “Montreal” … ah well, I know better about record keeping these days.  The “Date First Seen” column is the date the species was first entered into the database … sort of the local patch lifer record but not necessarily the date I first ever saw it anywhere (a real lifer).

Twenty-five species of warblers too – not bad, I think.
