BIRDS OF JORDAN, CHECKLIST OF THE BIRDS OF JORDAN, ITS COMPLETE BIRDLIST
Birds of Jordan 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
Jordan 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 Jordan to raise their young, migrants who pass through Jordan with the seasons, to wintering birds who like to spend a good
part of the winter in Jordan 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 Jordan 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 Jordan 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 Jordan.
