My Nova Scotia List

Just for interest, this is my Nova Scotia list using the new, 2017 taxonomic order. The list has the species, site of the first tick and date. Where I have a photo of the first tick I’ll use it, or I’ll use a photo of the same species seen subsequently in NS. Really this is just a way of sticking up a Nova Scotia bird gallery – enjoy. * means I have found my own at some point; it’s not all twitching you know! This is a work in progress

302 species as at 09-04-2017.
