Quite a lot of these - although, with over 10,000 species of bird and almost 200 countries, that is over 2 million combinations of bird and country which could theoretically be covered here :P

Nice to see us in the UK getting a new species for the first time. I wonder whether the Trinidade Petrel will stay around?
