Species groups

Do you know where in the Netherlands rare warblers or other species groups have been found?

Did you know that currently there are 538 bird species on the Dutch list and that about 39% of those are considered rarities.

What is rare here, is usually common elsewhere. Every patch is different and has its own challenging species. This is no different in my little corner of the birding world.

Epic rarities

Siberian Rubythroat is one of about 80 extreme rarities on the Dutch list. Some discoveries go back to the nineteenth century, others were made only recently. 

Thanks to all observers who reported their rare bird discoveries to or and submitted them to the rarities committee (CDNA).
