Information regarding the 285 species of birds recorded in Calhoun County, and where you should be able to find (most of) them.
This section of my website is dedicated to chronicling the Birds recorded in Calhoun County. eBird has been the biggest source, as there have been 264 bird sightings recorded.
The remainder are from:
Birds of Calhoun County
Navigation of the website:
In the main body I will have some comments about the bird. What the best months are to see it around here. I will also have some suggestions on where to look. <insert legal disclaimer, or some such claptrap, about no guarantees you will see the bird at that location/time>
Speaking of disclaimers, I will also have pictures included on those birds that I have taken pictures of. I am not a professional photographer, so many of them are purely for documentation purposes. Also not all of them will necessarily be from birds in Calhoun County. Where needed I will note those as best I can.
