Wild bird identification

Look out for these woodland birds next time you're out and about.

Lots of wild birds make their homes in the woods. How many can you spot while you’re on your woodland wander?

  • Some birds prefer to eat seeds and insects in the trees, but others search for food in leaf litter.
  • You might hear the birds before you see them, but keep your eyes peeled
  • Sit still and quiet and wait to see if any birds appear

Some birds are harder to spot than others, so you’ll have to look carefully. If you identified each bird on this sheet, try finding others. Which are your favourites?
