Participants must be either individual/family members of NYSOA or members of NYSOA member clubs/organizations.

Only one report per form submission. Additional reporters must complete and submit their own forms, either online or via paper & USPS. Beyond the membership requirement, no attempt is made to verify, screen or otherwise edit any reports.

All reports are for individual Life Lists with the one exception of an individual New York State 2016 Year List.  (No club lists or other joint or communal reports, please.)

No reports submitted in previous years are carried into the next published list.  If you want your numbers published, submit them on this form, even if they haven’t changed.

NEW Pelagic Zone: As of the 2015 reporting year, we are using the NYSARC/eBird/ABA NYS Pelagic Zone definition: Beginning 3 [statute] miles from shore and extending to the 200 nautical mile mark, with state boundary lines calculated using the NPoL/CPoL
(Nearest/Closest Point of Land) method. PZ species should be included in your PZ, NYS, Region 10, AND Queens, Nassau, and/or Suffolk life totals. See nybirds.org/CountyLists/PelagicBoundaries.htm for details. Also please read the information on that page regarding inland bodies of water and associated county boundaries (they don't alwasy fall in the middle of the body of water!).

Acceptable Species
DO NOT INCLUDE in your numbers any hybrids, subspecies, forms, released or escaped birds or any species not yet on the official Checklist of the Birds of New York State.  Just a few examples of birds not to be included in your reports are: Chukar, Great White Heron, Brewster’s Warbler, Oregon Junco.  In some cases, the bird may eventually be included in the Checklist; have patience.  You may, of course, keep anything you want on your personal lists, but for reporting here, please conform to the rules we ask everyone to follow.

For the State and Regional categories, there are reporting thresholds, as indicated.  Reports below the thresholds will not be published.  There are no thresholds for County Lists.
