Tennessee is a big, beautiful, ecologically diverse state. All of the birds that can be regularly found in Tennessee can be found in other states, particularly nearby inland states, but some can be found more readily because they breed or winter here in significantly greater numbers. Some species are easier to find because they regularly hang out in specific habitats and locations. The current list of species verified to have been seen at least once in the state totals close to 400, but this number is changing annually. With more of us in the state watching birds, the number of birds we find in Tennessee is certain to grow.
