Illinois Threatened and Endangered Species by County 
Important Note:
The Illinois Natural Heritage Database is updated daily with data pertaining to threatened and endangeredspecies occurrences in Illinois. Please check this website quarterly for updates to this list or contact Database staff directly attara.kieninger@illinois.gov or (217)782-2685.Please note that because many birds observed in the state are merely migrants passing through, we typically only track thosesightings which have evidence of breeding (nest with young, breeding and/or nesting behavior in adults, juveniles observed, etc.).We normally do not track instances where a bird is observed perched on a tree branch, flying in the air, or feeding unless other evidence of breeding is witnessed or there is an existing breeding record for the species in the area.
