Please note: † Indicates a rare breeding species or SARA-listed (Species at Risk Act) species for which detailed documentation is recommended. Note that some of these species may be reasonably common in a limited area of the province or may be common as migrants (but not as breeders). § Indicates species for which documentation should be should be provided when a confirmed record is found. Species shown in gray italics are non-breeding visitors in the province. If you find evidence of breeding for any of them, please contact the Atlas office.

Additionally, species can also be considered rare at the regional level (marked with ‡ on the square summary sheets, the regional checklists and the online data entry forms), as well as a [rare] observation for the location and time of year. Documentation should be provided in both cases.
