About the County Checklist Project

The "Utah Birds" website is developing lists of birds seen in each county.  Each checklist will have all of the 468 species [2021] found in the Utah but will have an "x" in front of the the ones that have been reported in that particular county.  So in essence these are lists that show what birds have been reported in the county and which have NOT been reported.  Hopefully this will encourage reporting of species that are unusual in the different counties.

Rare birds (that are on the Records Committee "Review List") will be confirmed by sight records that have been submitted to the Records Committee.

These checklists are not meant to be carefully documented, highly studied-out checklists with seasonal, status and abundance information as is in traditional checklists.  Some of this more "substantial" type of checklists can be found on the checklist page and include checklists for national parks, wildlife preserves and other discrete areas as well as several counties. A combined spreadsheet containing all of these checklist side by side will also be kept to give an overall picture for each species.

This project began in January 2007 and will be on-going.  You can help with this project by reporting birds you find that are NOT on the list of a given county . (Report new birds at:
