  My Bird Life List

One of the fun things about being a new birder was there were more opportunities for life birds (your first-time sighting of a bird). Every new bird species I see is a real joy, but those opportunities are becoming increasingly difficult. In 2015, I started traveling to add new life birds. So far, I've visited Pennsylvania, Ohio, Arizona, New Jersey, Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Virginia, and most recently, the amazing country of Costa Rica.

The list below contains the species that I've been able to add to my bird Life List since I started birding in September, 2010.

Total bird species: 771 (last update: 11/13/2020 - Hoary Redpoll)

NOTE: you can sort by species or date by clicking on a column header and hovering over the species name gives more information.
