What are Neotropical Migrant Landbirds?

    Neotropical migrant birds are those species that nest in the United States or Canada, and spend the winter primarily south of our border in Mexico, Central or South America, or in the Caribbean. More than 350 species, or about half of those that breed in the United States and Canada, are neotropical migrants. These include shorebirds, waterbirds and landbirds.
