  List of North American birds - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This list of North American birds is a comprehensive listing of all the bird species known from the North American continent north of Mexico.
North American birds most closely resemble those of Eurasia, which was connected to the continent as part of the supercontinent Laurasia until recent times.
Several common birds in North America, such as the House Sparrow, the Rock Dove, the European Starling, and the Mute Swan are introduced species, meaning that they are not native to this continent but were brought here by man from Europe or elsewhere.

 A Field Checklist of the Birds of Guyana - Introduction
This publication presents a comprehensive list of the birds of Guyana with summary information on their habitats, biogeographical affinities, migratory behavior and abundance, in a format suitable for use in the field.

The classification and nomenclature herein are based on the Check-list of North American Birds (American Ornithologists' Union 1998), Ridgely and Tudor (1989, 1994), Monroe and Sibley (1993), and Traylor (1979), with minor revisions judged by the authors to be justified by recent research.

 Birds, Familiar: Song Sparrow, Life Histories of North American Birds, A.C. Bent
The arrival of migrants, and the return to their breeding territories of birds that have wintered, normally begins in the latter half of February in the southern part of the range, while the first spring arrivals appear in Maine in mid- and late March and in Canada in March and early April.
Birds as large as the catbird and hairy woodpecker happening to approach the nest are attacked, and Forbush mentions a successful attempt by a song sparrow to drive five house sparrows from a feeding station.
A given bird has a vocabulary of a large number of notes and phrases, and these are variously combined to produce up to a dozen or more different song patterns; the different patterns of a given bird are often quite different.
