BirdFiles: The Dave's Garden Bird Database

Welcome to BirdFiles, a database designed to help birders identify the birds in their gardens and in nature. BirdFiles continues to grow through the collaborative efforts of 676 people from around the world. Any registered user may add new birds, images, comments, and ZIP codes.

There are 3,526 birds listed, with 8,110 images and 956 comments in our database.

You may search for entries by common or scientific name, or browse through an entire order of birds to find what you're looking for. If you would like to add your own photo, description, or other details to a particular bird, you will find the links to do just that under the current information within each entry.

If you know of a bird that is not yet in our database we invite you to add it. (You must be a registered member of Dave's Garden to create new entries, or add information and photos to our database. Membership is free, click here for instructions.)

BirdFiles is part of the Dave's Garden community. If you like this feature, you may be interested in our Bird Watching Forum. Please take a quick tour of Dave's Garden and see the many other tools and features we provide for our members!
