Many, O LORD my God, are Your wonderful works Which You have done; And Your thoughts toward us Cannot be recounted to You in order; If I would declare and speak of them, They are more than can be numbered. (Psalms 40:5 NKJV)

List of ORDERS of the Birds in Taxonomic Order

Version 9.2 (Jun 28, 2019 )

The IOC World Bird List 9.2 contains 11,758 extant species (and 158 extinct species)  classified in 40 Orders,  250 Families and 2,320 Genera.  The list also includes 20,034 subspecies.

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.)

Green = New Order 11.2

Orders – Alphabetical
