The final numbers are in for the 2022 Great Backyard Bird Count. There were 7,099 species of birds identified in 192 participating countries. There were 359,479 eBird checklists submitted and 384,641 estimated global participants. Overall, the number of checklists was down slightly from 2021, but the number of participants increased. This is likely due to people returning to birding in large groups.
The United States had the highest number of checklists (234,131). California had the most checklists with 20,191. New York, Texas, and Florida were not too far behind with respectable numbers of checklists in the 13,000-14,000 range. California and Texas also dominated the numbers of species reported in their warmer climates with 380 and 371 species sighted, respectively. Pennsylvania came in fifth with 11,763 checklists.
India had an impressive year, landing them in the second spot with 42,830 total eBird submissions, an increase of 28% from 2001. Canada had the third highest number of checklists with 33,797. There was also an increase in participation from Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Colombia, Chile, Costa Rica, Spain, Ecuador, and Ireland.
