Perching Birds Gallery



Perching birds, or songbirds, are the most common birds on Earth. True perching birds
have four toes, three directed forward and one backward. They are found in abundance
on all continents except Antarctica and on most oceanic islands. With 5,700 different species
in this grouping we often find ourselves challenged to identify individual birds and have a
temporary holding group we put them into for classification: TBBs or better know as
Tiny Brown Birds!
