Birding Identification SItes:

  • http://www.whatbird.com/ - Over 900 birds are in this database - search one by one from 11 attributes (habitat, color, backyard feeder, bill length, readily eats, bill shape, location, shape, size, wing shape, family) - use the attributes you are sure of first to identify birds.  Very good!  This site seems to be a little slow to generate results, but it is very smart - narrowing down results as you select more and more features, and subsets of values for those features.

  • Idaho Museum of Natural History Visual Key for Bird Identification

  • The Internet Bird Collection (IBC) http://ibc.hbw.com/ibc/phtml/whatIBC.phtml is a non-profit endeavor with the goal of disseminating knowledge about the world's avifauna.  It is an on-line audiovisual library of footage of the world's birds that is available to the general public free of charge.  While the initial aim is to post at least one video per species, the long-term objective is to eventually include several videos showing a variety of biological aspects (e.g. feeding, breeding, etc.) for every species.
