Welcome to a World of Biodiversity

The Pelee Island Bird Observatory (PIBO) is an NGO devoted to the study of migration and conservation of birds.  Located at the southernmost tip of Canada, Pelee Island in Lake Erie hosts a tremendous variety of North American birds.  This website will provide you with a wealth of information about Pelee Island’s bird life, including unusual bird sightings, bird banding totals, migration reports and other birding news. PIBO maintains a bird checklist, which details the truly impressive range of bird species to be found living on and passing through Pelee Island.

Our Mission is to Help Birds

Learn about species at risk on Pelee Island, and PIBO’s educational program. To gain a truly immersive experience of how you can help birds, come for a visit to PIBO and enjoy the treasures of the island – the Bird House is particularly ideal for living among the birds. Join the Bird House Steward Program and make it an annual affair.
