Mississippi Bird Watching
There are more than 800 bird species that occur in continental North America and its adjacent islands. The most recent Checklist of Birds of Mississippi includes almost one-half of them. That’s a lifetime’s worth of birds, and getting to see them, one by one, is a great big adventure. The end of the bird-watching rainbow is nowhere in sight—no one has seen all the birds within the geographical boundaries of this or any other state, and no one has ever learned every fascinating thing there is to know about their lives.
