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. Each year we band 12 to 15,000+ birds of more than 120 species. A daily census documents 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.
