A complete list of birds of Inyo County, in a trifold brochure format (for printing double-sided) is available here in pdf format: Inyo County Bird Checklist. This list was put together by North American Birds sub-regional editors for Inyo County, Tom and Jo Heindel, for reporting rare bird sightings.
The Mono Lake Committee maintains a Mono Basin Checklist here: monolake.org/about/birdlist, and the Owens Valley Committee has a checklist of Owens Lake birds here: ovcweb.org/OwensValley/OwensLakebirdlist.html as well as this list of some common birds by habitat: ovcweb.org/OwensValley/Birdhabitat.html.
Additionally, a checklist of bird species in the Laws area was compiled by ESAS member Roberta Lagomarsini. This is also in a trifold brochure format for double-sided printing.
Please document and report rare bird sightings to Inyo or Mono County subregional editors for North American Birds, as described on this page.
