Photo Galleries

Photographs are separated into Current, Archive and Checklist galleries. Current photos are those taken in the last six months. Archive photos are photos from previous years, earlier than those in the current gallery. Checklist photos are indexed by the Ontario checklist and show our best photos of all birds officially recorded in Ontario and including nests, eggs, young and various plumages.

All photos on this website are © the photographer.

OFO reserves the right to re‐use photos from these sections elsewhere on the website and on any OFO social media.
