About The Game Bird List

The idea behind The Game Bird List is to create a comprehensive and flexible list of the huntable species of game birds in North America. The idea came about with a simple question regarding native game birds and has grown to include all huntable species, native and non native, migratory and non migratory, exotic and familiar.

All the information you will find here can be found in one place or another but much of it was not readily available let alone organized and in one place. The birds are organized into categories and in addition to the scientific and common name we have attempted to include information about each species including a brief description, a bit of science and some general hunting information.

This site was created for the hunter and or outdoor lover and is not meant to be a guide for identification. Our goal is to provide information, support conservation and to create a place for you to keep track of the birds you hunt.
