Sulawesi Dwarf Kingfisher (Ceyx fallax) by Peter Ericsson

For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
(Ephesians 3:14-15 KJV)

These pages contain Lee’s Birds of the World, based on the 

Version 8.2 (Jun 25, 2018 )

The IOC World Bird List 8.2 contains 10,711 extant species (and 158 extinct species)  classified in 40 Orders,  246 Families (plus 1 Incertae Sedis) and 2,313 Genera.  The list also includes 20,055 subspecies,

Compared to the 7.3 list that contained 10,694 extant species (and 158 extinct species)  classified in 40 Orders,  238 Families (plus 2 Incertae Sedis) and 2,297 Genera and 20,074 Subspecies.  

All the ORDERs and the Families are listed. Please enjoy looking around at the references to the numerous birds that the Lord has created.

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.)
