Bird Watching Made Fun and Easy with Free Online Service

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

Bird watching and identification has never been easier! Duncraft, the bird feed and feeding experts, have just unveiled a free online search engine, linked to a database of hundreds of wild birds of North America. Entirely picture-based, you just click on the various attributes which identify your bird in question, and by process of elimination, voila, you end up identifying your bird.

Basic attributes on which you can zero in include the geographical location, shape, size, colour, bill shape, wing shape, habitat, what it readily eats, and whether it shows up at a bird feeder. You can also identify, again by picture, any patterns on its body (head, back, chest, and belly), the colours on the various parts of its head (including eye colour, nape, crown, forehead, throat, and cere), and its body shape, body size, and the colours of various other body parts.


When your bird is identified, you are taken to the database entry for your bird, which includes pictures, all sorts of interesting information, and an example of its song or call. Very neat!

You can also elect to look at all of the birds in the database, or to listen to all of their songs and calls. That last is actually my favourite area on the site. The page with the calls has all of the calls right there, as links, and you can just click and listen to your heart’s content to every single bird in the database.

A very fun and educational service!
