Birds of the World
The Families here are based on the I.O.C., 4.3 version of 2014. These pages contain Lee’s Birds of the World, It lists 40 Orders, 237 Families (plus 3 Incertae Sedis), and 10,534 individual Species in 2,276 Genera. There are 20,999 subspecies and 150 extinct species now listed. All the ORDERs and the Families are listed. Please enjoy looking around at the references to the numerous birds that the Lord has created.
So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that moves, with which the waters abounded, according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth. (Genesis 1:21-22 NKJV)

All the Indexes are now up to date and it makes it easier to find them with the Alphabetical List of the Birds. (The use of your “Search” or “Find” on your browser is very useful on long lists. “Control + F” is the shortcut for Find. I use it quite frequently.)
