This checklist uses the taxonomy of the Check-list of North American Birds through the 63d Supplement (August 2022) issued by the Committee on Classification and Nomenclature—North and Middle America, a branch of the American Ornithological Society (formerly American Ornithologists’ Union).

Species included are those accepted through August 2022 by the Alabama Bird Records Committee of the Alabama Ornithological Society.

The checklist was produced by Greg D. Jackson (Bird Records Compiler, Ala. Ornith. Soc.), August 2022.
