Three species of swans (two as breeders) and ten species of geese (five breeding) occur in Sweden. Canada and Egyptian Goose are not native and the latter is only vagrant to the country.
Seabirds (order Procellariiformes) barely fit in this gallery. Non of those birds breed in the country even if it sometimes European Storm-petrel might be a potential one. Few species are regular on migration, but with favorable weather conditions some speices can be encountered in fair numbers, especially along the west coast. A dozen species have been seen in the country, including Northern Gannets and an unidentified species of Frigatebird. The latter two are not Procellariiformes. Approximately 10 species are annual.
The Great Cormorant, Grey Heron and the Bittern are Swedish breeders in this diverse gallery. But several of the other species are thought to become regular breeders soon.
In this group of shorebirds we find the Curlews and Godwits, of which some species are in rapid decline. Whimbrel and Eurasian Curlew belong to Numenius, a genus that lost two species globally in the 20th century (Slender-billed and Eskimo Curlews). Also, the Ruddy Turnstone has become increasingly absent in its former range. The majority of Calidris waders inhabits areas in the north where we find some of them breeding in the Swedish mountain heaths, some on the arctic tundra further north from the Swedish borders. But we have them as guests on their migration.
Six species of terns are Swedish breeders and the non-breeding White-winged Tern are seen yearly, sometimes in good numbers. Two species of jaegers are breeding and two are pelagic vagrants (See Tubenoses gallery).
This gallery brings together some species that do not naturally fit into the other, larger species groups. The judgement here is somewhat subjective. In Sweden we have e.g. just one nuthatch and one dipper. Shrikes and treecreepers have two species of each, while the wren, waxwing, oriole and dunnock also are the sole representatives for their families in the country, even though they have many close relatives globally.
Six Turdus thrushes and eight species of smaller representatives of various genera breeds in Sweden. This includes the Stonechat, that has been added quite recently as a Swedish breeder.
18 finch species breeds in Sweden and the non breeding Twite occurs as a rather common migrant. This divers group of birds contains species like the three Crossbills, Hawfinch and the two Passer Sparrows.
