Types of Bird in the United States and North America
This list is most of the types of birds you can see in the United States. We are continually adding our bird pictures to this list so please check back with us if you don’t see the bird you are looking for. You can also email us and we will add your request.
Also, the bird pictures are designed to help kids identify features of the birds like shape and color. When kids become familiar with the features of our cartoon birds they can more easily identify birds in the wild.
By subscribing to one of our monthly bird watching packages your kid will be introduced to more than 144 birds during 12 months. This is a great way to get kids outside and enjoying nature.
