A Checklist of the Birds of the Salton Sea

All species and subspecies are certainly recorded in the Salton Sink checklist. When a particular specimen is assumed to represent a given taxon, the museum is given in brackets if the checklist did not directly check the specimen. Species accounts should be consulted for more detail about any species or subspecies in the Salton Sea checklist. Birders wanting more conventional site guides or specific directions to the better birding sites should consult Brandt (1977), Dunn (1977), Mlodinow and O'Brien (1966:413), and Schram (1988). Records from neighboring regions imply that a few species and subspecies are conspicuously absent from the Salton Sea Checklist. Only targeted collecting will confirm the presence of those already presumed to occur in the Salton Sink in the case of some subspecies. The checklist does not provide a site guide directing the interested observer to locales in the Salton Sink where various species might be found.
