Learning to identify birds is a challenge.

A field guide is a must as is a decent pair of binoculars. The best way to learn to identify birds is from an experienced birdwatcher. Many local Audubon societies offer field trips which are excellent for learning birds. After you learn how to identify a few birds, identifying others will be easier.  At first it will be difficult as many birds, especially smaller ones, are hard to distinguish. After awhile, with experience and help from others, your skills will develop so that you know what to look for and what to ignore. You will learn the common birds so that you can more easily search for the uncommon ones. The bird populations change with the seasons, so it’s a continual, but fun, challenge.

Abyssinian_Roller_specimen_RWDThe Abyssian Roller, related to Kingfishers and Bee-eaters, is found across the tropical and subtropical belt south of the Sahara. Its rolling and twisting flight give it its name. 

For great information on bird identification and natural history, go to Cornell’s Laboratory of Ornithology.

The following has been modified from the Audubon Society:

When faced with a bird in the field, a birder first takes note of its key distinguishing features, or “field marks”â�� overall size and shape, bill structure, plumage (the markings on head and body)â��and its actions. Many birds can be identified by the colors and patterns of their plumage alone, but plumages can be difficult to assess in the field. Distance, tricky lighting, individual variation, and damage from staining, oil, or simple wear and tear (old feathers often become sun-bleached and bedraggled) can lead to the absence or obscuring of field marks. Therefore, even before studying a birdâ��s plumage in detail, a birder takes note of its size and structure.

The structural features of the head and the size and shape of the body file0001199338479provide crucial information for the identification of many species. It is usually possible to “narrow down” the identity of a bird in the field to just a few possibilities by determining its overall proportions: Is the body slender or thickset? Are the neck and legs long or short? Are the wings short, broad, and rounded or long, narrow, and pointed? How many toes are on the foot? Oftentimes, the birdâ��s bill alone is enough to narrow down the identification: Is it thin or heavy? Long or short? Narrow or broad? Because size can be hard to judge in the field at any distance, even on a nearby bird, it can be useful to compare the size of the bird in question to that of birds around it, if possible.

It is not possible to identify every bird in the field. Young Allen�s and Rufous Hummingbirds, for instance, are essentially identical, only distinguishable with the bird in hand. There are also individual birds that stump even proficient birders. These include birds that have unusually pigmented plumage, bills or legs that differ in color from most of their species, or broken or deformed bills. Innately aberrant birds are usually rare, except in shorebirds and gulls, two groups in which atypical individuals are often observed.

 Essential in identifying birds is recognizing their physical features. Check this page of bird external anatomy.
