NB Winter Bird List

127 species - Dec 7, 2018 at 10:40 PM
Horned Lark

The winter bird list period starts on December 1st and ends on the last day of February of the following year. I will be monitoring the NatureNB Listserv for sightings and I will do my best to monitor the various Facebook Groups as well as eBird; however, if anybody happens to notice something posted somewhere that I have missed, please feel free to forward it to me.

If you prefer to send your sightings to me directly, you can send me an email with a few basic details on the sighting such as date the bird was seen, the general location where the bird was seen (city, town or community) and who the observers were (especially if you are sending the information on behalf of someone else).


*** IMPORTANT NOTE about taxonomic changes to the list ***

Some of you may notice that the order in which various families and species are listed in the checklist has changed as of November 2018. While the order may seem strange in some cases, most of these changes were made several years ago by the American Ornithological Society (AOS) on their Checklist of North American Birds; however, I had not taken the time to make those changes to this page. I know this may not matter much to a lot of people but I also know that it may cause some confusion with others who may be used to families and species being listed in a particular order which is why I'm mentionning it here.

    Species in Blue indicate a species that is not generally expected during the winter period
    Species in Red indicate a species that is uncommon or rare at any time of year in the province

* Cumulative Totals: The cumulative totals do not include the unknown Species (ex: Meadowlark sp. & Tern sp.) unless a member from that group does not already occur in the list.
** Wild Turkey: I have added Wild Turkey to the list of species on the Winter List; however, the species has not yet been added to the official New Brunswick Birds checklist so it will not be counted in the annual totals until it is added to the checklist. Click on this link if you'd like more information on the reasons for this.
 
Records marked with a "?" in the column are not included in the totals.

These may be birds that were identified to a "species group" but not identified to species (ex: Meadowlark species). In these cases, the species will be marked with an "X" and counted as long as another member of that species group has not been found and identified to species during the same winter period. Once another member of the same species group has been identified to species, the unidentified record will be marked with a "?" and will no longer be counted in the total.

Alternatively, a species may be marked with a "?" if I felt the species was unusual for the winter period, poses an identification challenge and for which I felt the information provided was inconclusive for positive identification. I do this to try to ensure that we limit the amount of erroneous records on the winter list. For more information on inconclusive records, you can click on the More Info link next to the species name.
