With the help of Concord West residents – including a delightful and much-appreciated contribution from Ms. Sandra Calderon – we are pleased to present, below, the beginnings of an ongoing project to document the many birds that make use of and rely on the Concord West Greenspace, a vibrant but endangered natural wildlife habitat, contiguous with the Bartley Smith Greenway corridor system. Our profound thanks go to Richmond Hill Naturalists Denise and Rod Potter, who graciously donated their time and their expertise in bird identification.
All the thumbnails on this page link are taken from the pages of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and clicking on any of the thumbnails will take you to Cornell’s page for the given bird, where you can get further information about the bird and listen to its calls. Many thanks to the Cornell team for permitting us to link our list of birds to their website.
We are also actively looking to expand the Concord West Picture Galleries and if you are a bird photographer, we would be delighted to include your contributions (with full credits, of course) in our own bird picture gallery.
Et voilá! The birds of Concord West:
