Default backyard bird identifier

Backyard Bird Identifier -- National Geographic

This is a very simple key to identify your backyard birds. It will at least help you narrow down your choices significantly by asking for state, month seen, color and size, then giving you a list of possible birds it could be.

I'm sorry! I wasn't trying to one up you. I've used this one for quite some time and really like it.

Nat Geo is good for some stuff, but I find they need to stick to geography. My sister bought one of their bird field guides, and it was pretty unremarkable.
