There are confirmed sightings of 363 bird species on Prince Edward Island. Each of these species has its own FULL PROFILE PAGE on this website, with photos, many references and relevant links.
Prince Edward Island is also located on the migratory corridor of many bird species. Some birds migrate completely out of their summer range, others migrate partly from the northern part of their summer range to the southern part. Other birds are permanent residents, and even this number can vary over the years, depending on the severity of the winter, which would understandably make sources of food harder to find.

One more note: birds – especially the migratory ones – know no geopolitical frontiers, so they can be found in vast areas, overlapping provincial and country boundaries. For birds in other locations, you can check this website: https://birdsoftheworld.info/.
