Missouri's Birds

With over 400 species recorded, Missouri has a nice smorgasboard available to birders. Read the overview about our birds before heading to the annotated checklist to learn more about distribution. The review list provides a list of species for which documentation is desired and be sure to report interesting sightings to MOBIRDS-L and the seasonal editors for inclusion in The Bluebird and North American Birds.
