Introducing NIAGARA BIRDS JOHN E. BLACK and KAYO J. ROY A void of nearly forty years has existed where no published records are available in a single volume on the birdlife of Niagara. The authors feel that a new updated book is long overdue. Niagara area avifauna have been well documented up to the year 1970 with the publication of The Birdlife of Canada’s Niagara Frontier (R. W. Sheppard, 1970) and Birds of the Niagara Frontier Region (Beardslee and Mitchell, 1965). Since the above publications were produced, a void of nearly forty years has existed where no published records are available in a single volume on the birdlife of Niagara. The authors feel that a new updated book is long overdue. This 600 plus page book is intended for anyone with an interest in Niagara’s varied avifauna. Documented here are complete accounts of the 373 species of birds that have occurred in Regional Niagara during the forty-one year period 1966 to 2006. Full data on the relative abundance, breeding evidence, and early and late dates of birds in the Region are compiled here in each of the four seasons: spring, summer, fall and winter. Fully documented as well are the details of the numerous extremely rare stragglers to Niagara that have made their way into the Region over the many years that records have been kept. Added to all of the above are numerous articles highlighting other avian activity that has taken place in Niagara. Highly qualified, prominent members of Ontario’s birding community write these articles. Included as well are exceptional colour photographs and high quality black and white drawings of birds observed in the Region.

Stevens Maggie A. Smiley Katherine J. Stoltz Paul W. Summerskill D. V. ‘Chip’ Weseloh Anne R. Yagi Donald J. P. Ziraldo THE AUTHORS John Black John is an avid bird watcher who arrived in the Niagara Region in 1966 to teach Physics at Brock University. In 1993 he began research on the migration of birds on weather radar and on the nocturnal calls of migrating birds. Results of these studies have been published in Birders Journal and The Auk. One of his present ambitions is to see all the families of birds in the world. He has served as councillor and webmaster for the Association of Field Ornithologists, Regional Coordinator for Niagara for the second Ontario Breeding Bird Atlas, member of the board of the Peninsula Field Naturalists, and he is currently president of the Ontario Field Ornithologists. Kayo Roy After moving from Toronto to Niagara in 1976, Kayo became seriously interested in birds through his hobby of photography. While his business as a retirement and pension consultant occupied most of his time, he managed to pursue this newfound passion for birds until it quickly began to consume all of his spare time. A former executive member of the Federation of Ontario Naturalists (now Ontario Nature), a past president of the Niagara Falls Nature Club, compiler of the Niagara Falls ON/NY Christmas Bird Count for the past 24 years, he served the birding community further as secretary of the Ontario Bird Records Committee.
