Bird Identification

Learn the parts of a bird from the chart below.

One of the first steps to good bird identification is to know the basic parts of a bird.  In most field guides, these terms will be referred to often in the process of bird identification.  The color of the bird is very important, and one of the first characteristics you will notice.  Size is also very important when trying to identify a bird, and is stated in inches or centimeters.  Bill size and shape, and tail shape with the presence of spots or bands is also a major deciding factor.
