Oklahoma Bird Species - Migration Search

Use this searchable database to find information about the earliest and latest anticipated dates for bird species that migrate into or through Oklahoma. The dates represent time periods considered normal for each species, and are not the earliest or latest known dates of occurrence in the state. 





How to search: 
By species: Enter a portion of a bird species' name to access the migration records for that or similar species (e.g., searching for "flycatcher" rather than "Willow Flycatcher" will provide search results for all species with "flycatcher" in the name).
By Arrival or Departure: To find all birds with Arrival or Departure dates within a specific month, enter the name of the month. To narrow the search, enter the month and a species name (e.g., Arrival = September, plus Species = Sparrow  to find the sparrows that arrive in September).

The information comes from The Oklahoma Bird Records Committee of the Oklahoma Ornithological Society, which publishes a Date Guide to the Occurrences of Birds in Oklahoma. This booklet divides Oklahoma into 7 geographic regions. All information presented is ŠOklahoma Ornithological Society.
