An Important Note about Searching By Color

This feature is not fully implemented and data is still incomplete so not all species can be found using a color search. Only species NOT marked with a # in lists can be searched for.

Identifying a bird by its coloration is how most people identify a species. Quite often the color of a birds breast is all that is required to make a positive identification. Other times identification can be extremely difficult. As a means of making identification by color simple this page is divided into several descrete regions of the birds anatomy.

The following anatomical areas can be used to search
