All birds featured in this page are rarities needing homologation by the SEO/BirdLife Rarities Committee except:

Anser brachyrhynchus, Aythya collaris, Egretta gularis × garzetta, Gyps rueppellii, Circus macrourus, Calidris melanotos, Calidris subruficollis, Phalaropus lobatus, Larus cachinnans, Larus glaucoides glaucoides, Larus hyperboreus, Sterna bengalensis, Sterna dougallii, Motacilla citreola and Phylloscopus inornatus not considered national Spanish rarities since 1.1.2016 but included here for reference as near-rarities and featured in grey colour and marked with a n

From 1.1.2017 no records of Larus cachinnans will be included in the website. The species has proven to be regular and it is no longer consider a national rarity. Indeed, there are more cachinanns that L.delawarensis records. Sightings of the rest of species 'ex-rarities' are variable from one year to another, offer some id challenges or are of overall interest, and hence they will be featured in the website as in 2016 for the sake of completeness. Phylloscopus inornatus is still included to better understand the apparent changes in its pattern of occurrence including wintering records, despite the tremendous amount of birds recorded in 2016.

newFrom 1.1.2018 no records of near rarities will be included in this website. However, you can tag #rarebirdspain in any of those sightings using your twitter account and they will be shown in the website's homepage twitter applet. You can also send them to the rarebirdspain group in the facebook. White gulls are not included since 1.12.2017.
