This report presents data on 149 species distributed throughout the national geography. Particular attention is given to 28 species that are scarce or were sparsely recorded in 2019, whose temporal and/or spatial distribution is illustrated by histograms and maps (see De Juana & Garcia, 2015; Gil-Velasco et al., 2018; Rouco et al., 2018). Bird records were collected from different bird registration platforms (eBird, 2020; Observado, 2020; Reservoir Birds, 2020, and Ornitho, 2020). For the Canary islands, a good number of the cited records correspond to the atmospheric haze episode that occurred at the end of February 2020. These meteorological circumstances caused the arrival of many accidental birds from Northwest Africa, which will be included in the corresponding SEO/BirdLife Rarities Committee report. Many other migrant species were observed on the islands more frequently and in higher numbers than usual during this event and the most important observations of these are summarised in this report. The taxonomic sequence follows the new List of Birds of Spain (Rouco et al., 2019).
