***IF YOU NEED HELP IDENTIFYING A BIRD***

In order for your me to help you in identifying your birds you need to be specific and give more details and information. Examples-does a bird have a pointed beak (warbler) or thicker seed eating beak (sparrow)? Where did you see it? High in a tree or low to the ground? Size-sparrow sized or larger-cardinal size?

Remember watch the bird carefully and record any and all information you can-size, shape, feeding behavior, habitat-marsh, forest, shoreline, place found- shrub, tree, water's edge, etc., any special field marks-wing bar, eye rings, color on tail, etc.. in order to help us identify the bird. Watch it as long as you can before it flies away.

Take the information you have observed and recorded in field notes and look in the book for possibilities. If you have an idea what you think it might be, this helps us eliminate possibilities and narrow down what it might be. I hope this is helpful.
