Ottawa-Hull (now Gatineau) 2001 Christmas Bird Count results

The Ottawa-Hull CBC was held on 16 December 2001. Participants comprised 119 observers in the field and 33 feeder watchers. The weather was excellent with 82 species being counted. There were 14 Record Highs, 3 Record Ties and 1 New Species recorded as well as the highest number of birds counted to date. The meal at the compilation session, hosted by Club des ornithologue de l'Outaouais, completed a great birding day.
