Under Construction – Still Finding Our Pictures to put with the Birds

[The best photos are at USNDANSPIX or just Dan’s Pix]

I’ve decided to not only include wild birds we have seen but also birds we have seen in zoos also. Most lists don’t let you include them, but still, I have seen them in person, so, they count to me. Going to put these in Taxonomic order and use the IOC names.

The ones we have seen in the wild (264 species[edit]) have a “**”  and the ones we saw at zoos are marked with the following code. A name in parenthesis is what they call them. The two numbers in brackets [ total birds in family –  our count ]

Zoo Abbreviations (BZ=Brevard Zoo, CZ=Cincinnati Zoo, HZ=Houston Zoo, LPZ=Lowry Park Zoo, JZ=Jacksonville Zoo, NA=National Aviary, NZ=National Zoo, MZ=Memphis Zoo, PB=Palm Beach Zoo, RZ=Riverbanks Zoo (SC), SAZ=San Antonio Zoo, SDZ=San Diego Zoo, TBF=Titusville Birding Festival, WA=Wings of Asia (at MetroZoo before Hurricane Andrew and new Wings of Asia at Zoo Miami or ZM=Zoo Miami),

What Birds Count on a Life List?

3 thoughts on “Life List of All Birds We Have Seen

    • That is not complete. I found quite a few photos today that I never worked up from two trips a few years ago. The San Diego Zoo and two zoos in Texas. Maybe I can “grow” that list some. Never get anywhere near the 10,600 +/- that the Lord has given us to enjoy. You have seen quite a few yourself.

  1. Quite an impressive list, but I am sure this is over many years. We’ve enjoyed the yard birds for years, but didn’t start keeping track until this spring. We also are now travelling a little ways to find birds outside of this area. What a thrill to find a Pileated woodpecker late last month when we went out of town for my birthday. We practically live on the prairie so would never see any around here.
