Bird Lister's Corner is an opportunity for PAFN club members to list their most recent total number of Life birds in four recognized categories. It is a great opportunity for club members to share in some friendly competition and to watch and measure your own progress over the upcoming months and years.

The four categories include:

Pembroke Circle (50 km circle) Pembroke Count Circle

Ontario (anywhere in the province of Ontario)

North America (ABA area-Canada and the United States including Alaska but excluding Hawaii).

ABA website ABA 2011 checklist

World - Includes all bird species from anywhere in the world including the ABA area. Must not include duplicates- a Mallard is a Mallard no matter what country. If there are any doubts, Latin names of the two birds must be compared. For example the Northern Gannet is not the same as the Gannet in Europe (two different Latin names).

To register, just forward your total life bird number for each of the categories and your best new lifer bird for each category and where you saw it to Ken Hooles at hooles@bell.net ie: Pembroke Circle - 120 ( Rufous Hummingbird, etc. The list will be updated quarterly including the best new Lifer bird.


Congratulations to Ken Brown for adding 25 birds to his world list with a visit to Kenya  and to Mike and Sandra MacDonald and Susan Ellis for adding several new birds to their world lists visiting Panama and Costa Rica. Well done Rob for being able to add one more bird to your Renfrew List during winter. Christian Renault is away in Kenya on a church mission so I anticipate further changes when he gets back in Mid-April.
