The white-throated dipper is the national bird of Norway.

This is a list of the bird species recorded in Norway. The avifauna of Norway included a total of 524 species recorded in the wild by the end of 2018 according to the Norwegian Ornithological Society (Norsk Ornitologisk Forening, NOF).[1] One additional species has been recorded in eBird.[2] Of the 525 species listed here, 244 are accidental and four have been introduced by humans.

This list's taxonomic treatment (designation and sequence of orders, families and species) and nomenclature (English and scientific names) are those of The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World, 2019 edition.[3]

The following tags have been used to highlight some categories of occurrence as noted by the NOF. The notes of population status such as "endangered" apply to the world population and are from Bird Checklists of the World.[4]

  • (A) Accidental - a species that rarely or accidentally occurs in Norway
  • (I) Introduced - a species introduced directly or indirectly to Norway and which has an established population
  • (D) Category D - species (17) for which there is reasonable doubt as to the wild origin of reported birds
