Birds not found in iBird Pro app

Recommended Posts

I was just in the Yucatan peninsula and saw and photographed a couple of birds that I can’t find in iBird Pro app. They were the American Pygmy Kingfisher and the Bare-throated Tiger Heron (I have some great shots of them).  My question is why are these birds excluded from the iBird Pro app?  They clearly are birds found in North America.

You won’t find Mexican birds in North American field guides. There avifauna is real different, and would addprobsly another 800 species to the field guide. To most birders, North America is the US and Canada. Field guides would be much less useful if they contained so many more birds, as there would be so many more birds you would have to look through and compare with to find your bird
