Birding in Toronto

Canada’s largest city boasts an impressive diversity of birds and bird habitats, with approximately 400 different species of birds spotted here. Birds that live here year-round are suited to the local habitat for all aspects of their lifecycle, in all seasons. Some of these birds include the Black-capped Chickadee (Parus atricapillus), Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) and Eastern Screech-Owl (Megascops asio). However, most birds observed in Toronto are visitors. Many of these migratory birds return each year to build nests, breed, and raise young, or use the city as a stopover point en route to or from breeding grounds in the Arctic or Boreal forest regions.Birding in Toronto AODA
