NOTE: New participants may add their totals anytime. New species seen after 31 December 2005 should be added to your tally NEXT year.

RULES: Part of the fun of birding for many people is keeping lists of birds seen in various places, including yards, towns, counties, states, countries, continents, etc. The type of lists are endless, and the American Birding Association (ABA) -- an organization that promotes birding in the United States and abroad -- publishes annual list reports from it's members for categories at and above the state level. Many birders enjoy keeping tallies of birds seen at more local levels statewide, such as counties or latilongs, towns, and even backyards. To that end, will publish annual list totals for birders who have lists of species seen in Idaho's counties and/or latilongs, as well as statewide totals. Participation is open to anyone who wants to send in their totals. The only rules are that you follow ALL the recording rules provided by ABA for deciding which species are eligible to be counted on your list, and all species must have been recorded by you in Idaho (duh -- these are "Idaho List Totals")! Have fun!

Remember -- the totals below contain "Big Years" as well as cumulitive "Life List" totals. Submit as many as you wish.

Idaho State List Totals: Total # of species seen in the state.

County List Totals: Total # of species seen in any of Idaho's 44 counties.

Latilong List Totals: Total # of species seen within the Idaho state boundaries in any of Idaho's 28 Latilongs.

Big Day List Totals: Total # of species seen in one day (midnight-midnight) in Idaho, organized by month, year, county, latilong, and statewide.

Send questions to: Threshholds for reporting have not been determined at this time, but a cutoff may be incorporated as reports dictate. For now, though, we encourage maximum participation! Report your numbers no matter how "small" they seem!
