Tämä on lista Vesilahden Saarikunnassa vuodesta 1987 lähtien havaitsemistani linnuista. [B] tarkoittaa, että lintu on pesinyt tai on ainakin todennäköinen pesijä, sekä [*], että lajista on ikkunapinna, so. näkö- tai kuulohavainto kotini ikkunasta.

Saarikunta on vajaan 7 km2 kokoinen pala ikivanhaa hämäläistä maaseutua, jonka ympärille Pyhäjärven eteläisimmät lahdet kiertyvät. Biotoopit ovat tyypillisesti vanhoja maatiloja, isoja peltoaukeita, pieniä metsäsaarekkeita, reheviä rantalehtoja ja matalia reheviä vesistöjä.

This is a list of my bird observations in Saarikunta from October, 1987 onwards. [B] means to tell that the species is a breeder (or at least a likely breeder) in Saarikunta, and [*] that the species has been seen or heard from my window.
