My Norway List

Black-headed Gull on Lamppost

I didn’t do a lot of birding in Norway this trip–I never did get to the wildife refuge or out into the forest–but I did take my binoculars with me most places, and there were still quite a few birds of interest. I didn’t bring my scope, but I never really needed it. Total species count for the trip was 21 including six life birds:

  • Fieldfare
  • Hooded Crow
  • Jackdaw
  • Rock Pigeon
  • Wood Pigeon
  • White Wagtail
  • Magpie
  • Mallard
  • Common Guillemot
  • Goldeneye
  • Tree Sparrow
  • House Sparrow
  • Greylag Goose
  • Common Moorhen
  • Black-headed Gull
  • Herring Gull
  • Great Tit
  • Blue Tit
  • Nuthatch
  • Great Cormorant
  • Tufted Duck

If I go back next year, I’ll schedule at least a couple of days for getting further out of the city, and maybe try to hook up with some local birders.
