Welcome to the OFO website. If it’s Ontario birds that you are interested in, then you've come to the right place. While you're here you can see Photo Main Page of recent sightings, find out about Upcoming Field Trips, view the official Ontario Checklist, read our OFO Code of Ethics, Become a Member of OFO, and much more. Enjoy the experience.
Winter is a time to travel to Algonquin Provincial Park to see winter finches and other northern specialties such as Gray Jay, Boreal Chickadee, Spruce Grouse and Black-backed Woodpecker. See the Winter Finch Forecast in the Articles and Reports section here.
Photo Galleries Changed
The Photo Galleries have been completely rewritten. You will find the navigation faster and we have added the ability to use the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate through the photos.
The process for adding photographs has been streamlined so you will see your submitted photographs appearing on the site much more quickly.
Please note that bookmarks made for the old galleries will fail and will have to be created again.
