Subject

This project provides an in depth glimpse into the bird communities present on the property of Abbey Gardens located in Haliburton County, Ontario, Canada. Point count surveys were conducted over the course of three years, at nine sites covering eight different habitat types. Detailed analysis of the composition, diversity, abundance, and distribution of bird species is outlined. Following this, we identify those species present that are listed as ‘at risk’ at some level by either the Federal Government or the Government of Ontario. We then discuss potential infrastructure developments, centered on the creation of a network of nest boxes for several species. Included are guidelines and protocols for the monitoring and maintenance of this network. Finally, we look at ways to involve the community, and visitors of Abbey Gardens in the monitoring of bird populations, as well as several options for informational signage to be placed in key areas around the property.
