Bird Identification Guide (India)

When choosing attributes, start with those that are most prominent and certain. For example, if you cannot surely say that a bird is green (parakeet) or black (crow), but are uncertain, don't choose color at all. Instead choose whatever is prominent - beak (pelican), crest (hoopoe). If there are too many results, you can always select more attributes to narrow it down.

The data is adapted from the tables in "The Book of Indian Birds" by Salim Ali. Pictures are from Wikipedia and each species has a link to the relevant Wikipedia page for further information.
