Rare bird species in Switzerland

      You can also find detailed information on the occurrence of rare birds in Switzerland in the database of the Swiss Ornithological Institute’s website. These are derived from the database of the SAK, Swiss Avifaunistic Commission. Information can be obtained under following headings:

      • “Distribution”: altitudinal distribution of recognised confirmed observations
      • “Migration”: seasonal dispersal and distribution of the recognised confirmed observations
      • “Situation & Trends”: Development of the observations per year as well as a list of the confirmed observations, i.e. total number of the observations and individuals

      The data is updated twice a year. Records are compiled from the SAK database for the species listed below. For further requests, please contact the secretary.
