In this section we’ll try to help you identify a bird you have seen. You will find multiple areas on to assist you with this task. Here are some of your choices.

If you check the 50 birds in your state (The Nifty-Fifty) and the others species in this section you will see about 200 different species.

1. Do you have a photograph of the bird?

If you have been able to obtain a photograph of the bird, you can email it to us and we’ll try to identify it for you. Fly over to the Name That Bird site to submit your photograph.

2. Most common by state

The mini-guides feature 50 of the most often observed birds for each state.

Each guide includes the 25 most often reported feeder birds for the state selected, based on information reported by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Project Feeder watch.

The additional 25 species represent some of the most common or most often observed species in the selected state. There is a good chance you will spot your bird by flipping through the pages of the mini-guide.

bird guide

To find the mini-guide for your state, hop over to the state-based information page. Select your state from the drop down list, then click on the Nifty-Fifty link from the left-hand menu.

3. You think you know, but are not sure

If you have an idea as to what your bird is, but are just not quite sure, then visit the Bird Guide.

bird identification

Look up the species that might be your bird. You’ll find descriptive information to help you confirm or deny your identification. Even if you have the wrong bird, most of the species in the guide have images and links to similar species.

A good approach is to use the Search by Family list. If you know the bird you saw was a duck, for example, you can easily go through all of the duck species.

4. Still looking?

If you still have not found your bird, try searching based on the criteria specified on the navigation links on the left.

5. The casual approach

The BirdzillaGames. com website contains images of about 200 different bird species. Play games such as solitaire, bird bingo, hangman, matching, or the Birdzilla Game Show. You’ll have fun while you improve your identification skills, and might just spot your bird.
