Ottawa-Hull 2000 Christmas Bird Count results

The Ottawa - Hull CBC was held on 17 December 2000. The count was comprised of 90 observers  in the field and 26 feeder watchers. The weather was not as great as last year but the count was still a lot of fun. The meal at the compilation session, hosted by Club des ornithologue de l'Outaouais, completed a great birding day.
