Green: The species is present year-round, though this does not necessarily mean that all individuals are resident. In some extreme cases, one population might leave an area seasonally, and be entirely replaced by another. Where this occurs, we explain this fully within the text.
Orange: Records during the breeding season only.
Yellow: Records of birds on migration only.
Blue: Records during the nonbreeding season only.
Hatched: Scarce in any of the above categories
Double hatched blue/orange: Nomadic, used primarily for African species where distributions are often rainfall-dependent.

Star: Extralimital records.
Cross: Historical records only, not believed to be still present.
Uncertain occurrence: ?
