North American Birds

North American birds include species found in the United States (excluding Hawaii) and Canada, and in nearby waters, that are breeding species, regular visitors, and casual and accidental species from other regions that are believed to have strayed here without direct human aid, and well-established introduced species that are now part of our avifauna. In addition, as an identification aid, I have included photos of these species even if the photos were taken outside of the North American area.
