Welcome to PEPtBO
Prince Edward Point Bird Observatory (PEPtBO) is a migration research station located at the south-eastern tip of Prince Edward County about 30 minutes southeast of Picton, Ontario in the Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area. Weather permitting, the Observatory is open daily for banding and observations from sunrise to 6 hours later each day, during both the spring and fall seasons. Each year we band 12 to 15,000+ birds of more than 120 species. A daily census helps to document the hundreds of thousands of birds that pass through in spring and fall. We are also caretakers for the Prince Edward County South Shore Important Bird Area.
