Birds of India
This page is intended to help the lay-person easily identify common birds and get further information. The data is extracted from "The Book of Indian Birds" by Salim Ali. Pictures are directly linked from Wikipedia and each species points to the relevant Wikipedia page for further information.

- Bird Identification Guide (India): This allows you to select criteria like size, colors and other features detailed in the tables at the beginning of Salim Ali's book for quick identification. The results are displayed in a table with pictures popping up when you hover the cursor over the name. This interface is work in progress & I expect to make several changes...
