Best answer:

Answer by drophley
All depends on what you’re looking for. Migrating birds and non migrating birds can include the same species (some just don’t travel).

But some of what I think you’re looking for is:
Shorebirds (pelicans, cormorants, gulls, terns, etc)
Pelagic (petrels, shearwaters, albatross, etc)
Waders (herons, egrets, etc)
Waterfowl (ducks, geese, etc)
Songbirds (warblers, sparrows, jays, etc)
Raptors (owls, hawks, falcons, etc)

Those were just off the top of my head, I may be missing some.

What do you think? Answer below!
