Winter Finches in Illinois

Fall 2008 - Spring 2009

The following maps show the counties from which various species of winter finch have been reported during the winter of 2008-2009 (inclusive of the fall and spring migrations). Counties highlighted in yellow are those which have reports. The sources of information for creating these maps are mainly the IL-Birds, Birdnotes, and CILB listserves. Note that Hoary Redpoll is a review list species; the map reflects reports, rather than accepted records.

The maps were last updated 1 March 2009.
