Hawks migrating over Île-Perrot, ducks congregating on Lake Saint-François, warblers converging on Mount Royal... 350 bird species recorded in the Montreal area make it the most prolific area in Quebec. Extending from the U.S. border to the Laurentians, from Ontario to Lake Saint-Pierre, this region's diverse habitat includes the wilderness of Mont Tremblant Park and downtown Montreal. Since 1917, Bird Protection Quebec has been holding field trips and keeping records in the Montreal area.
