This bird identification gallery is being developed to help our web site visitors identify and learn more about birds that can be seen in Michigan. Species are grouped by taxonomy. By simply clicking on a group name you will see all the individual species within that group. Next, to get a full description of the bird, click on its name and a new window will open. This is the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's "All About Birds" page. It contains a full description of each species including behavior, habitat, vocals and other interesting facts.
If our Michigan Bird Gallery does not have a picture of a taxonomy group or individual species, it means we are looking for quality images from photographers who would be willing to freely share their work on our web site. We are always looking for new and better images that can be used throughout our website and in our print publications. If you would like to submit images for our use please contact Program Coordinator, Wendy Tatar.
