Great Parks of Hamilton County

Annual Winter Bird Count

Whether you’re a veteran or fledgling just leaving the nest, all birders are invited to join Great Parks as we count the birds that call our parks home. Bundle up, bring your binoculars and be ready to flock together.

Join for the whole day or just a portion of the day. All birders are invited back to Winton Centre Auditorium at 4 p.m. for the grand tally.


Saturday, December 7 | 8 a.m.–5:30 p.m.
