Bird Listing.
In many part of the birding world there are lists of birders showing the number of species they have found in a special area or at a special time. There are year lists, garden lists, county lists, country lists, WP lists, world lists and many more. The scientific value of this can be discussed, but the lists are normally just for fun, for keeping order in one’s own records, and for competition among birding friends.
   The good things about listing are often an increase in the number of records being reported, especially of species that normally not count as major rarities, and also in more visits to new places and at new times of the year in order to add new species to one's list. Generally, listing also increases the interest for and knowledge of other species than just the major rarities. And, as said before, it could add more fun and joy to bird watching as well as increased contacts among groups of birdwatchers.

Ranking, personal lists, and species lists.
Below you will find the ranking, personal lists (click on the name) as well as species lists (who have seen what). Countable species follow the nomenclature used in the Birding Azores bird database, and it is only allowed to include observations of common, regular or rare species (for the latter, observations should be included in the database). Subspecies and species of category D-E (escapes or introduced species) are included in the lists but are not added into the number of species.

Azores Bird Club (ABC) member list.
Below you will also find the member list for ABC. Members not interested in keeping a personal bird list have entered only one species to the list in order to be added to the list.
