Birds are Split into Groups called Orders.  These groups are divided into families which are divided into genus then species and then sub-species.

These are orders, click an order to go to families.     Maybe one day all authorities will agree what birds belong in which genera, family and order. Until then we will try and make as much sense as possible. Please let us know if you find any errors or you disagree with any of our conclusions.
