Bird List / birds to know

List of birds you are required to know

By the end of the semester you must know the order and family and be able to identify by sight all of the species on the Course Species List below. Each week about 10 new species will be added to the Course Species List. You are responsible for knowing species once they are added to the list. This will accumulate to about 150 species by the end of the semester for which you are responsible. Birds on the Course Species List are listed below and are marked with a red dot red dot on the Full Species List. In addition, you will be expected to learn the vocalization for the 32 species labeled with an audio symbol audio symbol (click the symbol to hear the bird's song or call) on the Full Species List.

These slides give a summary of the Orders which encompass all the birds in the world: Birds of the World Orders Summaries Slides
