BENEWAH COUNTY BIRD CHECKLIST AND BENEWAH COUNTY 2013 BIG YEAR
Compiled by Shirley Sturts
Below is a list of all the Benewah County Birds that I have records for. This is our first Benewah County Big Year. We'll see how many of these species we can come up with. Call Shirley 664-5318 or e-mail email@example.com to get credit for being the first to see a species for the year. Also report any species not on this list, or any species that is marked rare or accidental (include documentation).
Common = 108
Scarce = 43
rare = 28
Accidental = 10
Benewah County Total (seen since 1950) = 229
Historical record only ( h ) (pre-1950) = 7
( c ) COMMON: Found every year, often seasonal, in many areas, in high to moderate numbers and some searching in appropriate areas may be required.
( u ) UNCOMMON: Found every year, often seasonal, in limited areas, in small numbers, and may require repeated search attempts in more specific areas.
( s ) SCARCE: Found most years, but difficult. Either very specialized and local in distribution; difficult to distinguish from similar, more common species; or only passes through briefly on migration.
( r ) RARE: Not seen every year, mostly irregular, some periodic.
( # ) ACCIDENTAL: Just a few total sightings with a low expectation of being found in the future.
TOTAL SEEN: 167 as of November 9, 2013 October 29, 2013
