Fishers Island Birds
The HLFM is maintaining a list of Annual Reported Bird Sightings on Fishers Island and its surrounding waters.
In 2022, there was a total of 179 species checked off. This year, as of February, there have been 103 different species reported. Of those, five were new and added to our overall list of historic sightings. That list now contains 257 species. The data are collected by a group of knowledgeable Fishers Islanders. eBird reports and Audubon Seasonal Bird Counts also provide additional sightings.
We would greatly appreciate your participation in our project. Please contact the museum by phone or email to begin receiving the monthly sighting report forms. At the end of each month, take a photo of your list and text or email it to the museum. Any sightings you can provide are welcome.
