I just posted a site on a post of Art's for bird identification. 

 

To keep this and others visible I am pinning this message so it is always on top of the group.

 

Cornell's site that I use the most, after my books.... http://www.allaboutb...rg/guide/search

 

I found this page at Sibley's site....   http://www.sibleygui...ird-references/

 

Nat Geo has a site....http://animals.natio...ird-identifier/

 

and of course Audubon... http://birds.audubon.org/birdid.

 

Feel free to add any other bird ID sites.

 

Cliff

Thanks, Cliff.

 

I use Bird Guide regularly.

I have the Sibley book, new edition with CD.

I have an old Audubon book as well.

 

The internet sites are superb if you are in the field and want a quick look up or bird call.

 

I strongly recommend iBird app for your phone!  Not sure which PN brother recommended this, maybe Mark.  Best $20 you will spend!!  Look it up on iTunes.

So you took my advice and went with that app. When I told you about it you were unsure. I love that app for out in the field great for sounds.

Cliff you should add the links I put up on that bird post you made with the quiz. They are also very helpful.

Perhaps not technically a "site", I use two apps on my iPhone/iPad (both free):

Audubon Birds - a great guide/reference for US birding

and

Merlin - a great tool to describe and then lookup birds (North American only).  Merlin comes from Cornell.

 

I am only an amateur, Merlin helps me keep up with more seasoned bird watchers.
