      Cheyenne & all,

       

      Another great option now is to check e-bird.

      http://ebird.org/content/ebird

       

      Just follow the link to view explore data:

      http://ebird.org/ebird/eBirdReports?cmd=Start

       

      Then you follow the link to create bar charts:

      http://ebird.org/ebird/GuideMe?cmd=changeLocation

       

      From here you select “Florida” from the state list, and click the “counties” link to the right and you can select a real time list of Lee county. The great part about e-bird versus printed species lists elsewhere, is that E-bird creates these lists from the data that has been submitted by observers’ submitted triplists. As such the checklist you generate is accurate to date, and generally free of biases that may exist in other checklists. For example, if the list is created by an individual and they don’t often bird in woods for example their idea of what is expected will reflect their experience and style of birding. Or sometimes these things were written a decade ago and don’t accurately reflect a modern or current status.

       

      Best,

      Hi birders-

       

      I was wondering where I can find a bird checklist for Fort Myers; I'm looking for a list that breaks down abundance of species by month -- similar to the checklist put out by SCCF for Sanibel birds. I'm new to the area and I bird often -- and I have no idea what is rare, common etc.

       

      Thanks,

       

      Cheyenne
