The 97th Hamilton Christmas Bird Count will be held on December 26, 2017. It is a tradition going back to a pair of adventurous birders in 1921 and has grown into an annual outing with over a hundred participants scouring Hamilton for every bird that can be found and identified.

Also upcoming is the 3rd Peach Tree Christmas Bird Count, on January 2, 2018 covering a western section of the Niagara Peninsula, from Fifty Point down to Caistorville.
