Birds of Missouri

Birds of Missouri

Missouri lies in the middle of the great North American heartland, with a fauna that reflects influences from all directions. Being east of center, our state will always fall within the “eastern” volume of any two-volume field guide; yet one can feel a pull from the West at the sight of a Swainson’s Hawk or a Greater Roadrunner…or a Collared Lizard on a cedar glade.

Bird Records Committee

Bird Records Committee

The Missouri Bird Records Committee (MBRC) is a standing committee of MBS that maintains a state checklist of birds, reviews reports of rare and unusual birds, and archives such records.
