Can you identify these birds?

Challenge your bird identification skills. All of the birds pictured are residents of, or visitors to, Peaks. How many can you identify? Bird identifications are at the bottom of the page. A checklist of all observed Peaks Island varieties appears here, and soon information about them will be posted, too. You can download a PDF page of these photos, and also the checklist of the 100 varieties of birds that call Peaks Island home, and start watching them yourself!
