This list comprises 494 bird species that have been recorded in Ontario on the basis of specimens, photographs, recordings and documented sight records accepted by the Ontario Bird Records Committee (OBRC) to April 2014. A total of 291 species is known to have bred in the province. Classification and nomenclature follow the American Ornithologists’ Union Check-list of North American Birds, (7th Edition, 1998) and its 42nd - 56th (July 2015) supplements. The most recent additions are:

Pink-footed Goose (2015)
Eurasian Dotterel (2015)
Little Egret (2015)
Kelp Gull (2015)
Elegant Tern (2014)
Brown Booby (2014)
Thick-billed Kingbird (2013)
Pyrrhuloxia (2012)
Yellow-nosed Albatross (2011)
Sooty/Short-tailed Shearwater (2011)
Anna’s Hummingbird (2011)
Roseate Spoonbill (2010)
Black-tailed Gull (2010)
Barnacle Goose (2009)
Mottled Duck (2009)
Black Swift (2008)
Neotropic Cormorant (2006)
McCown’s Longspur (2006)

Brewer’s Sparrow (2004)
White‐collared Swift (2002)
Manx Shearwater (2002)
Heermann’s Gull (2000)

The New World population of Common Moorhen is split from the Eurasian population and renamed Common Gallinule (Gallinula galeata) on the basis of differences in vocalizations as well as bill and shield morphology (AOU, 2011).

The English name Whip‐poor‐will has been changed to Eastern Whip‐poor‐will to distinguish it from the southwest population now renamed Mexican Whip‐poor‐will (2010). MacGillivray’s Warbler has been removed from the Ontario list (2010).

The English common name Nelson’s Sharp‐tailed Sparrow has been shortened to Nelson’s Sparrow (2009). The Tanagers family is removed and the three species formerly in that family are moved to the beginning of the Cardinals & Allies family (2009).

In 2008, the order of the gulls was changed on the Ontario Checklist to reflect the AOU order. Hoary Redpoll (2013), Black Scoter (2008) and Trumpeter Swan (2007) were added as breeding species. The common name Mongolian Plover is now Lesser Sand‐Plover (2004) to agree with modern Old World literature. The common name Rock Dove changed to Rock Pigeon (2003). The name Three‐toed Woodpecker changed to American Three‐toed Woodpecker (2003) as a result of a split from the Eurasian species. The name Common Snipe was changed to Wilson’s Snipe because of a split from the European species (2002).

Ontario is divided into Lowlands, Central and South regions (see map above); thus, the cities of Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury and North Bay are in the South region of the province.

L – Species recorded in the Lowlands Review Zone; (L) indicates the OBRC requests documentation when the species is recorded in the region.

C – Species recorded in the Central Review Zone; (C) indicates the OBRC requests documentation when the species is recorded in the region.

S – Species recorded in the South Review Zone; (S) indicates the OBRC requests documentation when the species is recorded in the region.

* – Species recorded as breeding in Ontario.

This checklist is at the species level only.
