Abstract: New Westminster held 73 breeding species of which 32 were confirmed, 8 were probable, and 33 were possible breeders in 2012–13. We recorded 48 species during Point Count surveys across the city. The greatest species diversity was generally associated with parks. The most frequently observed species in New Westminster were similar to those reported from Vancouver.
