State & County
This project is a compilation of total numbers for various lists birders might keep in the course of birding in Michigan. Included are County Life List totals, Site Life List totals, State Life List total, Big Year totals, Big Day totals, etc. County and Site Life lists are solicited, updated annually, and kept in a file for each county.
While there is obviously some competitive aspect to the compilation, hopefully a friendly one, there is no way to document that these totals or list are 100 percent true or accurate so take them with a grain of salt.
In addition, it was hoped by the original author of the compilation that this project might increase local awareness among Birder's and the habitats used by birds and in turn, might possibly tie in with local conservation efforts.
