Mackenzie Delta species list

A boring post here...
Simply a list of all the bird species I saw in the Mackenzie Delta with the percentage of eBird checklists that included that species!


I underlined the two most interesting species/percentages:

  • The European Starling was way out of range (1000km), but didn't spark much excitement in our group!
  • The Gyrfalcon was another unexpected bird, except this time we were excited to see it and it stuck around for the entire duration of our stay because a pair had a nest a mere 500m from our camp! I'll be devoting a post to those birds eventually...
