Ohio Year list 2017

Chronological listing of species seen in Ohio in 2017

I'm not a "lister" or "chaser" by any means. I never go out looking for anything specific or try to refind a bird that someone may have reported somewhere. These are just the birds I have encountered in Ohio as I go about my normal routines.
