Over 300 species of birds either breed, are resident, migrate through, or winter in New England.  This includes both inland birds and coastal birds. Some of these birds have a small New England range (for example, the Acadian Flycatcher) and other birds are found throughout the region.

The above list does not include all 300+ birds. Over time, we will continue adding birds until our list of New England birds is finally complete.
