Digital Videos of Birds of North America

including the Caribbean Islands

Biology Department, Saint Anselm College, Manchester, NH

 

This page contains digital videos I have taken of birds for use in my courses at Saint Anselm College, Manchester, New Hampshire. The clips are short and primarily intended for species identification. Some of the recordings were made in the wild and some are from zoos. They also contain specific behaviors (e.g., foraging, bathing, sunning, wing drying, etc.) that I am trying to show my students. It is an ongoing project and I plan to continue adding new species. The primary emphasis is on North American species. Click on the common name of each species to view the video.

I have added a special Galapagos Islands page with videos of birds from this archipelago. Some of these species are also found in North America and will be included here.

These videos can be viewed on a Macintosh or Windows based computer with the latest version of Quicktime. NOTE - Windows users - click here to download the latest version of Quicktime to views these videos.
