This page contains some useful information to help with bird identification.
The Bird Identification Sequence Diagram provides a roadmap for identification using size, beak, color, breast feathers and other bird characteristics.
The Roadside Silhouettes document shows 28 different bird silhouettes to help with identification.
Dr. Dan Scheiman, Director of Bird Conservation at Audubon Arkansas, has prepared five documents to help with identification of several groups of birds. Unlike field guides which give
all of the birds of the Eastern United States, Dan's documents include only Arkansas birds. For instance, if you think you see a specific sparrow, but do not find that species on Dan's list, you
are unlikely to see it in Arkansas. Thanks to Dan for sharing these useful identification guides with us!

The Birds of Hot Springs Village Checklist is a handy guide that may help you identify the birds in your backyard.
