Tantillos Birding Life List

We have enjoyed watching birds ever since the first feathered friend landed in our back yard in Smackover, Arkansas. However, it wasn't until we received a book designed to document when and where we saw birds did we start documenting when and where we saw birds. This list began in April 2004 (though we may have noted some earlier sightings). There have been multiple sightings of many of these birds, but we just listed the first sighting. We will update this list from time to time. Enjoy
