SoCal Birding Guides

This is the list of 185 California specialty species or subspecies which are regularly viewable from land. (Of course, you need to take a boat to get to the land where the Island Scrub-Jay resides.) Some of these are extremely rare or difficult to find. Others are seasonal. Please purchase and read the ABA / Lane Birdfinding Guide "A Birder's Guide to Southern California" by Brad Schram to find our what species to include on your hit list. The charts in the back will give you the status and distribution.
