Hello, and welcome to Common Birds of New England: An Electronic Field Guide. Birds are among the most wonderful and unique creatures on our planet. Detailed within this guide are dozens of New England's most recognizable species, from robins to red-tailed hawks. While this guide includes many of the more commonly encountered bird species of New England, it is by no means exhaustive. For some more comprehensive sources, visit the links section on our About page.

This guide is the culmination of a project by two Brandeis University students, Matthew Kamm and Benjamin Kuss. We created this field guide for our Biology 32a Field Biology class under the guidance of our professor, Dan Perlman. If you'd like to find out more about us and the course, and get to links to our classmates' websites, just head to our About page.

On the other hand, if you're ready to dive headfirst (beakfirst?) into the exciting world of bird identification, you can use our Search page to look for birds by common name, scientific name, family, habitat, or size. If you're new to birding and need a hand with the technical mumbo jumbo, make good use of our Glossary page. If you're feeling a bit overwhelmed at any time, just navigate to the Help page for some, well, help.
