Hi Tweeters and Inland NW Birders

The latest version of the 2021 county year list project is up online at Washington Birder. Almost all counties have reported in with totals through the end of October. As ever, County Compilers would appreciate receiving reports of any birds seen that aren’t noted yet on their county tallies.

The state year total is 401.
2020 we were at 390
2019 we were at 381
2018 we were at 384
2017 we were at 392
2016 we were at 388
2015 we were at 391
2014 we were at 390
2013 we were at 394
2012 we were at 396 at this point.
This is tied for the best year total at this point we’ve seen in the past decade

Eastern WA has reported 345 species, twenty-six better than last year’s 319 at this point.
Western WA has reported 357 species, six lower than last year’s total [363] at this point.

23 counties have higher year list totals than this point last year, 15 have lower totals, and one is exactly at the same point as last year [Kittitas, at 242]
33 counties have totals within 10 of last year at this time -

33 counties have reached 200 or more species for the year, and only two counties are below 175 for the year [Columbia and Garfield] —

67 species have been in seen in all 39 counties, 135 in all 19 Western WA counties, and 77 in all 20 Eastern WA counties.

If you'd like to take a look at where things stand, the list and many other interesting files are at the Washington Birder website:

Thanks to all the compilers and all those pitching in to sketch a picture of another year's birds in WA. Looking forward to seeing how 2021 wraps up!
