Research funding to a graduate student at a Missouri university doing ornithological research in Missouri.
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.
Join some friendly Missouri birders on an outing or at an MBS meeting. A blue button to the right indicates a special MBS birding event. Check the calendar for an opportunity near you or use one of our many Birders' Guides to explore on your own.
