How to safe and print a list

Alberta 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 Alberta to raise their young, migrants who pass through Alberta with the seasons, to wintering birds who like to spend a good part of the winter in Alberta 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 Alberta 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 Alberta you can find  waterfowl and wading birds, a large suite of songbirds, 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 Alberta.

Birds of ALBERTA, a checklist of the birds of ALBERTA. Oiseaux de ALBERTA. The information from BIRDLIST is based on research from from literature, the official national checklists of the birds, information from birdwatchers and extrapolation of our own data. On this checklist of the birds of ALBERTA, the seasonal presence and abundance of each bird is coded with our standardized system.
