NATURE WORLDWIDE: BIRDS

WORLD INSTITUTE FOR CONSERVATION & ENVIRONMENT, WICE

BIRDS OF FINLAND



Welcome to Nature worldwide with the birds of this country or territory. Many of our tables are coded for abundance and presence. If letters in foreign languages show as "?", go to "view" in your browser, change your character encoding to "Western ISO 8859-1" or "Western European". For printing a paper copy to take with you to your destination: here is how you can print a table. To learn about how we acquired the information, see our Methodology page. Click here if you are curious about who we are. We have about 2000 pages, not only on birds but also on, mammals and national parks as well as nature related links by country. For the list of mammals or national parks of this country or for the links, press the related country link at the bottom of the page. National Parks in developing countries need YOUR help. Learn more about the most important rescue effort ever made to rescue nature and about our crusade to rescue nature in the tropics from annihilation!

Birds of Finland

Birds of Finland coded for abundance, breeding, migration, wintering, endemic, rare, etc.; 2000 pages on birds, nature, birdwatching, where to go birding, birds and nature pictures, nature conservation, equipment, bird feeding, etc. Welcome to the bird list of Finland.

Finland is home to an impressive number of species of birds that vary from residents, that stay all year around, to breeding birds, that spend a good part of the growing season in Finland to raise their young, migrants who pass through Finland with the seasons, to wintering birds who like to spend a good part of the winter in Finland to escape colder conditions up north. While many species of birds are relatively common as they are part of the ecosystems of the state, it is always a thrill to stumble upon a rare bird or vagrant, that does not really form part of any the Finland ecosystems. Maybe it got lost during its travels between its summer and winter residence or it got displaced by bad weather.

Among the species of the checklist of the birds of Finland you can find  waterfowl and wading birds, a large suite of song birds, raptors, game birds, swifts and nighthawks, etc., many of which occupy several ecosystems simultaneously, as they fly to and from forests, meadows, shorelines of waters, cities and and urban green spaces. At Birdlist, we have developed a coding system that can help you predict when you may expect a certain species, with a code for seasonality, such as resident, nesting, wintering, etc. A code for abundance will give you a clue on the likelihood that you may actually see a certain species of bird. As we progressed with the coding, we realized that there should be a differentiation in the coding for "common", such as less common, common and very common birds. However, this would require reliable quantative data, which for most states, are not revealed by the commission of bird records. We hope to provide those in the future. In the meantime, enjoy the current checklist of the birds of Finland.

Thank you for visiting Nature Worldwide on Finland. In this linked net of country pages you can find lists of birds, nature, mammals and national parks. Birds of Finland provides a checklist of the birds of Finland. It is a complete birdlist or bird list listing all the birds of Finland in ornithological taxonomic order. In Nature of Finland you can find nature related websites, like on birding, birdwatching, general ornithology, nature, nature conservation, national parks, protected areas, nature reserves, etc. In Mammals of Finland you can find the list of the mammals of Finland in taxonomic order. National parks, Nature reserves and Protected areas of Finland provides you with list of all the national parks and other protected areas of Finland.  Click on the following links for our web pages on Finland.

NATURE WORLDWIDE is the official website of the World Institute for Conservation and Environment, WICE. It is an integrated network of web sites dealing with different topics on nature, nature conservation and natural resources management. Read here why we created Nature Worldwide. Our Methodology explains how we produced our information. Our Web Map helps you find your way in the website and the sitemap has all pages. We made this website out of passion for conservation. We spent our own salaries and free time to gather the information and publish it on these websites, in total valuing hundreds of thousands of dollars of professional time. Nobody pays us to do this. We simply want to contribute to conservation. If you appreciate our work, PLEASE visit our site Adopt A Ranger and see how you can make a difference for conservation most effectively: By paying one day of the salary of a ranger, you will make a difference in conserving the lives of thousands of birds, other critters and entire forests. Check our sitemap. Enjoy!
