On this page you will find photos of the birds that we see most often in our own backyards.  The purpose here is to help with a quick identification. 

The photos on this page are of the males of each species.  These are the birds with the most distinguishing field marks.  The females of most species are less colorful (for camoflauge reasons). 

You can
click on any of the photos to view more information on each bird.
