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.

Upcoming is the 6th Peach Tree Christmas Bird Count, on January 4, 2021, covering a western section of the Niagara Peninsula, from Fifty Point down to Caistorville.
