USA 2019 - Bird checklist

       
 

I only recorded 85 species of birds on this trip. This is excluded many "small brown jobs", or small birds I could identify. Still, in total this is a very low number of species. Next time, I have to travel to Florida in the winter, to get all the migrants :)

SC = South Carolina, GA = Georgia, FL = Florida
