I stated earlier that I would make my bird list available as the year goes on. Apparently, Blogger (the site that my blog is hosted on) doesn't allow someone to upload a file directly to their blog. Instead I'm using a file sharing site. Essentially I upload my spreadsheet containing my big year list to the file sharing site, and this site hosts it and makes it publicly available. I've created a link in the upper right hand corner of my blog (above my photo and short bio) that lets you download the spreadsheet. I'll update it frequently as the year goes on. Hopefully this works!
The first tab of the big list contains a list of all the species of birds on the Ontario list. I have the species ranked based on how likely I am to see them (remember the codes?). As you can see by scrolling down to the bottom I have 215 species ranked as code 1 (meaning that these 215 species are guaranteed on my big year), 66 as code 2, 38 as code 3, 39 as code 4, 63 as code 5, and 62 as code 6.
The second tab of the spreadsheet contains all the Ontario species in phylogenetic order.
The third tab of the spreadsheet contains all the species in chronological order. Whenever I see a new year bird, I'll add it.
