1 CHECKLIST OF THE BIRDS OF MANITOBA Date: Location(s): Weather: Observer(s): Manitoba Avian Research Committee Nature Manitoba Revised 2009 INTRODUCTION Manitoba s wide range of habitats support a great diversity of bird species. Of the 391 confirmed species included in this checklist, at least 306 occur regularly and 287 have bred in the province. Manitoba is an excellent ple to find some of the most wanted species in North America, such as Spruce and Sharp-tailed Grouse, Yellow Rail, Ross s Gull (at Churchill), Northern Hawk Owl, Great Gray Owl, Three-toed Woodpecker, Sprague s Pipit, Connecticut Warbler and Baird s and Le Conte s Sparrows. Because of Manitoba s central location on the North American continent, vagrants can and do arrive from all points of the compass. REGIONS. For this checklist, Manitoba has been divided into three regions (see map on bk cover). Coastal Tundra borders Hudson Bay and includes both low arctic tundra and taiga-tundra transition. Four different Bird Conservation Regions are represented within Manitoba s Boreal Forest consisting of mixed and coniferous forest as well as spruce-tamark bogs. The Farmland/Parkland region once included prairie habitat but today consists chiefly of agricultural land, aspen parkland and riparian woodland. However, fragments of prairie and a number of grassland areas remain. Pockets of boreal forest occur within this region and pockets or larger trts of farmland have been cleared at the southern fringes of the Boreal Forest region. The distribution of species within a given region may not be uniform. Within the Boreal Forest, marked differences in abundance may occur from north to south. For example, White-winged Scoter and Arctic Tern are more common in the north than in the south, while Mourning Warbler and American Redstart are more prevalent in the south. Uneven distributions may also occur within the Farmland/ Parkland. Species more common in the western part of this region include Greater White-fronted and Ross s Geese (during migration) and typical grassland birds such as Ferruginous Hawk and Sprague s Pipit. American Woodcock and Chestnut-sided Warbler are examples of species more common in the eastern portion. SEASONS. In this checklist, seasons are defined as: Spring (Sp) March, April, May Summer (Su) June, July, August Fall (F) September, October, November Winter (W) December, January, February Under this classification, spring arrives in the Coastal Tundra at the same time it does in the Farmland/Parkland a situation that does not reflect climatological reality! Criteria for ceptance of species. Records are considered confirmed when documented by one of the following: 1) a recognizable photograph or video recording; 2) a voice recording; 3) a convincing description by two or more competent observers submitted in writing to the Manitoba Ornithological Records Committee (MORC); or 4) a specimen. Birding Hot Spots. While there are many good ples to find birds in Manitoba, several locations stand out. The area around Churchill is famous for its Arctic birds and rarities such as Ross s Gull. In southwestern Manitoba, Whitewater Lake is worth a visit and the Lyleton- Melita area offers many western birds not found elsewhere in the province. Also in the west are Duck Mountain, Turtle Mountain and Spruce Woods Provincial Parks and Riding Mountain National Park. All of these are islands of forest in the prairie ocean. In southeastern Manitoba, Oak Hammock Marsh, Delta Marsh, Seven Sisters Falls area, Whiteshell Provincial Park, lakeside resorts and cottage communities offer fine birding opportunities. Within the city of Winnipeg, Assiniboine Park and several smaller city parks can be productive, especially during migration. For details on how to reh some of these sites, consult the bird-finding guide listed in the Reference Materials section. Manitoba has a group of enthusiastic birders who will gladly supply information on recent bird sightings. Call the Nature Manitoba office at for assistance in rehing someone in the group. Recent bird sightings can also be cessed at: A Manitoba Bird Records File has been established at the Manitoba Museum (190 Rupert Avenue, Winnipeg, MB, R3B 0N2). This file ts as a repository for records of all bird species occurring in the province. Your sightings may be included in this file by contting Rudolf Koes, 135 Rossmere Cres., Winnipeg, MB, R2K 0G1; Especially valuable would be information from less extensively birded areas such as the northern half and the extreme southeast of the province. Species are listed in the order established by the American Ornithologists Union Check-list of North American Birds, 7th Edition,49th Supplement (2008).

2 The Manitoba Ornithological Records Committee is responsible for evaluating rare bird reports and ruling on additions to the provincial species list. Written documentation should be submitted to the committee via the Nature Manitoba website. Follow the Birding link at Digital images or any other documentation can be ed to Rudolf Koes at or mailed to Rudolf Koes (see address under Manitoba Bird Records File). Natural history societies in the province include: Nature Manitoba Albert Street, Winnipeg, MB R3B 1G4; ; Brandon Naturalists Society Rosser Ave., Brandon, MB R7B 0H1; Portage Natural History Group Countess Ave., Portage la Prairie, MB R1N 0S7 Intermountain Naturalists Society th Ave. SW, Dauphin, MB R7N 1V4; Selkirk Birdwatchers Club - 15 Mapleridge Dr., Selkirk, MB, R1A 2Y5 Reference Materials Bezener, A. and De Smet, K., Manitoba Birds.

This checklist is a collaborative effort of the Manitoba Avian Research Committee (MARC). It was first compiled in November, Revisions were made in 2000 and The cover illustration was drawn by R. Koes. The map was prepared by R. Tkhuk. Technical support was provided by Manitoba Hydro. ABUNDANCE CODES A - Abundant: can be observed on all visits to preferred habitats during the proper season, usually in large numbers. C - Common: can be observed on most visits to preferred habitat during the proper season, numbers may vary considerably. F - Fairly Common: often observed in preferred habitat, usually in low numbers. U - Uncommon: infrequently observed in preferred habitat. Its presence is not surprising. R - Rare: seldom observed but expected to occur annually. O - Occasional: seven or more records since January 1, 1960: not expected to occur annually. since January 1, 1960: - Accidental: one to six records since Accidental: sightings before Accidental: one bird present for more than one season. I - Irruptive: abundance varies dramatically from year to year. * - Local: restricted to a few locations within the region. BREEDING STATUS A species for which breeding is confirmed, eggs or flightless young observed, and which is believed to have bred since 1960.?
