Help with Identifying Your Feathered Friends

Screen shot from Hawk Ridge's Raptor ID Guide.
For the next couple of months, we'll often focus on topics related to migration.  We thought we'd share some great sites that will help you identify some of the birds that you might share your yard, and skies, with, as they move through to southern wintering grounds. 

For help with identifying raptors, especially in flight, Hawk Ridge has a printable pdf with silhouettes and other great information here.

For great general information about raptors (and not just ones found in North America), the Peregrine Fund has a great resource here

A great site with information on all things bird - including natural history, plumages, conservation topics as well as ways to identify birds - is Audubon's Online Guide to North American Birds.
