The Churchill, Manitoba region on Hudson Bay in Canada is a world famous destination for natural history studies and ecotourism. Detailed ornithological studies have been conducted there for more than a century, and the earliest records date to 1619. There is probably no other area in the subarctic with such an extensive record. In addition, Churchill has the longest continuous record of meteorological conditions for any high latitude locality.
Birdlife of the Churchill Region provides current information on the avifauna of Churchill and adjacent regions of nothern Manitoba. It also sythesizes the detailed record from the 20th century along with the extensive historical record to provide a basis for studying long-term faunal change, presents information on the natural history of selected species, and highlights the historical contributions to Canadian natural history by one of its greatest explorers, Samuel Hearne, who used Churchill as a base in the mid 18th century.
