birds_body_partsTo properly identify birds you have to know some basic anatomy of the outside of a bird. There are many more terms than those listed here. Some are appropriate for one bird and not another, such as crest, eyering, and wingbars – some birds have these characters and some don’t. Most field guides provide a diagram as see here for reference.
