Status & Distribution - Virginia Beach Comprehensive Checklist

This listing contains every species for which there exists an accepted record for the state of Virginia. In order to compile this list, eBird and The Raven (the official journal of the Virginia Society of Ornithology), specifically the annual VARCOM reports, were searched in full. Review & acceptance has been completed by the regional reviewers of eBird and/or the Virginia Avian Records Committee (VARCOM). In going through all these records, I created a system for assigning each species a particular 'Filter Code', which is reflective of how eBird treats a particular species if submitted by a user. Code 1 species (purple) are accepted on a year-round basis (permanent residents) as long as the counts are within acceptable ranges. The acceptable count fluctuates depending on the season, but these species have records during the full calendar year in Virginia Beach. Code 2 species (blue or red) are those that spend a full season (winter or summer residents) in the county; they may be present in higher numbers during transitional months, but at least some individuals remain until the next transitional period. These species are accepted into eBird during one date range (fall to spring or spring to fall) as long as the submission falls within accepted counts. Code 3 species (yellow) are those that pass through our region while migrating between wintering & breeding grounds (transients). These species are given two short duration windows (or in some cases, just one) in eBird where they are accepted, as long as the submission falls within accepted counts. Code 4 (green) represents species that hold a zero-count year-round, and will require review & acceptance by eBird anytime they are submitted on a checklist (rarities). Lastly, Code 5 species are those that have been accepted in Virginia, but not in Virginia Beach. These species are not included on the filter, but any observation will require the addition of the species to the official list & eBird filter. The colors have been selected to mirror typical field guide range maps to make viewing this table easy to interpret. A simplified version of the Filter Codes are explained below. (Revised Sep 2017)

Color Key & Species Count Breakdowns

Filter: All - Permanent Residents - Winter Residents - Summer Residents - Transients - Rarities

Filter Code Species Count Code Explanation
Code 1 87   Permanent Residents; filter allows specified (though likely varying) counts throughout the full calendar year.
Code 2A 67   Annual Winter Residents; filter allows specific counts from an expected fall arrival date to an expected spring departure date.
Code 2B 40   Annual Summer Residents; filter allows specific counts from an expected spring arrival date to an expected fall departure date.
Code 3A 39   Annual Spring & Fall transients; filter allows specific counts during two (or one) transitional timeframes.
Code 3B 4   Annual Fall Transients; filter allows specific counts from an expected fall arrival date to an expected fall departure date.
Code 3C 0   Annual Spring Transients; filter allows specific counts from an expected spring arrival date to an expected spring departure date.
Code 4A 102   Annual or Near-Annual Rarities; included in filter, but set to a maximum count of zero year-round (all reports will require review).
Code 4B 50   Accidentals/Casuals (Prior occurrence, but not generally expected to occur in any given year); included in filter, but set to a maximum count of zero year-round.
Code 5A 40   Hypotheticals; species with accepted records in Virginia and while presently unrecorded in filter area, future occurrence is likely based on species distribution.
Code 5B 47   Unlikely; species with accepted records (VARCOM, OR eBird) in Virginia though unrecorded in filter area and future occurrence is unlikely based on current species distribution.

The right portion of this table contains links to distributional information for each species within eBird. A map of the spatial distributions (the 'where') may be accessed under the "Spatial Distribution" column. As long as there are records in Virginia Beach, the map will default to a full view of the county. The final column, 'Counts & Seasonality', provides accepted counts throughout the year for each species. In combination, the spatial, count, and seasonality data comprise the full distribution of each species.
