The Fermilab Bird List

Data compilation by Peter Kasper.

See the following link information concerning the Current Status of Access to Fermilab

The following pages contain lists, of nearly all the bird species recorded within the Fermilab site boundaries. The names and ordering follow that of the American Ornithologists Union's check-list of North American birds. The lists also indicate at what time of year each species was found. To do this we have divided each year into 48 quarter-months and split the entire survey into five year periods. The first period started in 1987. A symbol is entered into the table for each record, indicating in which survey periods the record occurred. A legend describing these symbols is included with each page. Each list entry also contains a link to some text describing the bird's status on the site. Some exotic species have been excluded from the main list since they are extremely unlikely to have occurred naturally.
