Welcome to PEPtBO
Spring banding has now finished for the season and the Observatory is closed. The Observatory will open for fall banding on Aug 15. Trails in the National Wildlife Area and South Shore IBA are open all year.
PEPtBO is a migration research station located in the Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area. We are also caretakers for the Prince Edward County South Shore Important Bird Area.
New for Spring 2017
