Here is the list of the birds Brian and I saw or heard on the trip. Heard-only species are denoted by (H) and established introduced species by (I). Life birds are in blue bold and other new birds for my Bahamas list are in italic. An asterisk denotes West Indian endemics and near-endemics.

If the order seems a little strange, it's because it is my own interpretation of current information about what the taxonomic order should be (TiF Checklist).
