NeilyWorld      Birding Ottawa

A Birdfinding Guide to the Ottawa Area

         NeilyWorld's Birding Ottawa is the most comprehensive guide for birders to Canada's capital region. Bordering on the boreal forest and divided by the Ottawa River, this area has much to offer the resident or visiting birder. Northern avian visitors make each winter exciting. Over 400 Ottawa area birding sites are described with maps and directions. Sections of the guide include: When and Where to See, Rare Bird Alerts, Checklist, Winter Specialty Status, Seasonal Guide, Useful Tools, Listers' Corners for Ottawa and Canada, etc. The Birding Links section has over 4,000 links worldwide. Birding Ottawa began as a book several years ago and evolved into a website. The internet is a much more dynamic format than a book. You will find many different paths to follow here. Additionally, the information can be updated in almost real-time. The site is an ongoing work. To see what the latest additions to this website are, visit the What's New page. I sincerely hope that folks will find this site useful and that it will stimulate an interest in our local natural areas. Check out the Introduction page to see the scope of the information provided. If you find errors or omissions in this website, please let me know at, so that together we can provide the best information.
