NOTE ON PUBLIC BIRDING ACCESS TO INSTALLATIONS: Availability and publication of a bird checklist does not necessarily imply authorization for public access onto a military installation. We are in the process of compiling a more thorough list of installations that allow individual or group access for birding. Please see each checklist for access details, or contact a DoD Partners in Flight Representative to inquire about a specific location not shown here.
