Search by Habitat

Many bird species have a strong affinity for a particular habitat. Some species have become so adapted to a specific habitat they would not be able to survive in another.

A duck needs water, of course, but other species have their own habitat preferences. Select from one of the habitats or locations on the left to see species often associated with that location.
