OTTAWA-GATINEAU 2002 CBC RESULTS              

The Ottawa-Gatineau CBC was held on the15 December 2002. There were 129 observers in the field and 11 feeder watchers. The weather was overcast in the morning and rain/snow in the afternoon. The cold snap earlier in the month most likely reduced the number of species seen. Seventy-three species were found, 8 Record Highs, and 5 Record Ties. No new species located this year. The meal at the compilation session, hosted by Club des ornithologue de l'Outaouais, completed a great birding day.
