Over 400 species of birds either breed, are resident, migrate through, or winter in New England - from the tiny Ruby-throated Hummingbird to the mighty Bald Eagle. Some of these birds have a fairly small New England range and other birds are common and found throughout the region.
Whether you're looking for birds in your backyard or deep in the woods, here are some photos, facts and identification tips to help you identify New England birds.
Note: The above list does not include all 400+ birds. Over time, we will continue adding species to our list of New England birds, which includes birds in Massachusetts (MA), New Hampshire (NH), Connecticut (CT), Vermont (VT), Maine (ME), and Rhode Island (RI).
