New Species Added to the Arkansas Field List Since the Publication of James and Neal, "Arkansas Birds Their Distribution and Abundance", 1986.

In many cases  photographs have been selected from documentation supporting the first record of the bird in Arkansas. In cases where the first record is a sight record with supporting documentation, a photo from a subsequent sighting of the bird is shown. NOTE: All copyright remains with the photographer.  The original records are stored in the Arkansas Audubon Society archive at the Mullin's Library at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.

For more detail on each species found between 1985 and 2007 see James, et al and for species added from 2007 through 2009 see James, et al
