   OTTAWA / GATINEAU 50-KM CHECKLIST CIRCLE    DAY LISTS

         The Ottawa/Gatineau 50-km Checklist Circle, affectionately known as simply "The Circle", is a 50 kilomtre circle centred on the Peace Tower. For a graphic and further description of this area, see the Circle page.
         An Ottawa/Gatineau 50-km Checklist Circle Day List is defined as the number of species of wild and unrestrained birds identified by a given observer within the checklist circle during a single calendar day. For the sake of variety and competitive interest, there is an overall best day list and 12 other lists, one for the best day in each month. Birds must be on the official area checklist to be counted. This includes all those on the latest OFNC printed checklist and those accepted subsequently by the Birds Records Subcommittee of the OFNC.
