Bird List

Here is a list of birds we have identified so far with some photos (which also appear in the blog posts).   This is not a scientific record with each day’s sightings and exact location – it is just a personal tally and memory jogger.

After 39 weeks on the road 316 species of bird have been identified, but it is getting harder to get new species added to the list.   Being a bird nerd already, I thought I might as well go full nerd and try to estimate how many birds I would see in a year.   The graph below shows cumulative bird sightings.  Dare I hope for 350?

Photos of the birds we have seen can be seen in the blog posts, but I have started to reproduce them here for easy reference.   I have not been able to photograph all the birds I have seen and in some cases, when I have, the photos are of poor quality, so not worth publishing.
