Resources for identifying and understanding birds: taxonomies, identifying characteristics, life-cycle characteristics, habitats, etc.
All About Birds All About Birds is created by the staff of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. It’s our aim to make this site the Web’s best and most comprehensive resource for North American birds, bird watching, and bird conservation—accessible to everyone for free.
WhatBird.com My name is Mitchell Waite and I have developed a radical search engine to identify birds of North America that differs from anything on the web. Whatbird.com lets you find your bird with just a few clicks. It's so accurate and fast that the Wild Bird Feeding Institute is using it to help people identify birds for Project Wildbird, their 3-year study on backyard feeding habits. What makes this engine so special is that it uses a parametric step-by-step approach as contrasted with all the other ID engines currently available in the Internet which use an "all at once" approach. In order to find a bird these search engines require you to enter all the ID information and field marks upfront at the same time. This means you are either going to get "zero matches" or a huge number of matches.
Our engine gets around this by presenting a visual interface to whatever field mark you select first. Each step narrows the search results to help locate the bird you saw. Try the bird search engine--it currently has over 800 birds in the database, each having a magnificent hand painted illustration, a bird call (the sounds it makes) that you can listen to and extensive species accounts. Here is an example of the Allen's Hummingbird.
Bird Life International BirdLife International is a global Partnership of conservation organisations that strives to conserve birds, their habitats and global biodiversity, working with people towards sustainability in the use of natural resources. BirdLife Partners operate in over one hundred countries and territories worldwide.
The American Birding Association The American Birding Association provides leadership to birders by increasing their knowledge, skills, and enjoyment of birding. We are the only organization in North America that specifically caters to recreational birders. We also contribute to bird and bird habitat conservation through our varied programs.
Bird Treatment and Leanring Center The Bird Treatment and Learning Center is dedicated to rehabilitating sick, injured or orphaned wild birds and providing avian education programs to the public. Dr. James R. Scott, an Anchorage veterinarian, now retired, founded Bird TLC in 1988. Dr. Scott, along with other Alaskan veterinarians and volunteers, donate their time to treat these birds in need. In addition to medical care, Bird TLC provides a variety of educational programs to increase people's awareness of the wild birds around them.
Alaska Bird Observatory The Alaska Bird Observatory advances the appreciation, understanding, and conservation of birds and their habitats through research and education.
Cornell Lab of Ornithology We use science to understand the world, to find new ways to make conservation work, and to involve people who share our passion.

Audubon Alaska Audubon Alaska's mission is to conserve the spectacular natural ecosystems of our state, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats, for the benefit and enjoyment of current and future generations. As an office of the National Audubon Society, we use science to identify conservation priorities and support conservation actions and policies, with an emphasis on public lands and waters.
Reports and Checklists Organize your own checklist at e-Birds. See bird reports on the web.
E-bird: Submit Your Sightings E-bird is a real-time, online checklist program, eBird has revolutionized the way that the birding community reports and accesses information about birds. Launched in 2002 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, eBird provides rich data sources for basic information on bird abundance and distribution at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. E-bird is amassing one of the largest and fastest growing biodiversity data resources in existence. For example, in January 2010, participants reported more than 1.5 million bird observations across North America! The observations of each participant join those of others in an international network of eBird users. eBird then shares these observations with a global community of educators, land managers, ornithologists, and conservation biologists.
AkBirding AK Birding is for discussion of Alaska birding and wild birds only.This list is statewide in scope.
