Rhode Island Checklist

This checklist lists birds that have been recorded in RI in modern times as of December 2012. The list is based on the 52’th supplement of the American Ornithologists’ Union’s “Check-list of North American Birds”, the Audubon Society of Rhode Island’s 2002 “Checklist of Rhode Island Birds” and other credible reports.

In the list, the “AOU” column refers to the bird’s position in the American Ornithologists’ Union’s checklist, and the “ASRI” column refers to the bird’s position in the ASRI 2002 “Checklist of Rhode Island Birds”.
