Bird Classification

This is an attempt to reflect the latest state of knowledge of high-level bird taxonomy. If anyone thinks I’ve gone wrong anywhere, feel free to comment. I endeavour to browse through the IOC Bird List, especially the Family List, to make sure that I get my classification up to the latest standard.

For a more detailed taxonomy of the Passeriformes, I’ve tried to follow the article on Passerines in Wikipedia (still work in progress).

I’ve also added a British Bird List for comparison with the pictures I’ve got available for the blogs.
