The 15th annual Northumberland Summer Bird Count was held on June 4th and 5th. Observers covered the same 24 km diameter count circle used in previous years. The circle covers from Rice Lake and Roseneath in the north, to Hwy 401 just north of Grafton in the south, and Harwood Rd. in the west, to almost Morganston in the east. The weather cooperated with two good bird-counting days. This year, 13,047 birds of 136 species were recorded. The record highs were in 2007 when 16,623 birds of 143 species were found.
