Taking A Look At The Types Of Birds List

types of birds list

You can visit your local bookstore or go online and do some searching but if you really want to find the ultimate types of birds then it pays to get your search on the internet. There are many places where you can get the types of birds listed and many people will tell you that you just need to get out there and start looking as there are so many varieties of birds out there.

However you must realize that not all types of birds are good to have around your home. Here are a few types of birds that I would not recommend having as pets or keeping as a pet.

First on the list is the Woodpecker. This particular type of bird is no longer as popular as it used to be and many people seem to prefer the more “realistic” looking types of birds to the more “pet friendly” ones.

They are generally nocturnal, which makes them no better for pet bird names. Woodpeckers are known for howling at night also. I don’t know if they are louder than other types of birds or not, but be aware that they are definitely annoying and loud.

Black Headed Hummingbird

Second on the list of pet bird names is the Black Headed Hummingbird. These birds are also nocturnal but unlike woodpeckers they tend to only peck at the tops of tall trees or leave droppings on tall sticks or trees.

They are very noisy and have a high level of screeching that can be quite disturbing to your neighbors. I do not recommend these birds for anyone with allergies or who likes to hear loud screeching. They make very good living pets though.

Green-Winged Lovebird

The three types of birds that must be mentioned on this list are the Green-winged Lovebird and the Purple Martin. These are also nocturnal birds that are quite noticeable during the day. Both of them are also quite flighty.

When I first heard about them I was shocked that such an uncommon type of bird was actually popular. I assume that their popularity has more to do with the fact that they are both fun to feed and to watch. I would classify them as the more aggressive types of parrots.

King Parrot

The fourth type of bird that must be mentioned is the King Parrot. This is the most popular of all the parrot types and you will find these in most local pet stores. They are also very aggressive and are great to have as pets.

They are also easy to care for and keep around the house. The only problem that I have noticed with these birds is that when they are displayed as pets, they tend to get aggressive and snatch and attack other birds or toys that are near them.

Yellow Stored Parrot

The fifth and last is the Yellow Stored Parrot. These are also a great choice as pets and they are very friendly and sociable. They love to be in groups and are great at communicating with others. The most commonly found color of these birds is yellow, so make sure that you take a look at this list and see which color fits your personality the best.

Those were just a few types of birds that can be found on a list of popular types of birds. There are many other types of birds out there and I’m sure that there are more out there. It just depends on what part of the country that you live in. For instance, if you live in the Evergreen States, chances are that you will have a wide variety of different species of birds in your area. So make sure that you take a look at your own area and see what you can find.


As you can see, when it comes down to it, there are many types of birds out there. So make sure that you take a look at your list and see what you can find. If you want to have peace of mind when you are taking care of your birds, then you will want to make sure that you know about the various types of birds out there and be able to identify them. This will allow you to take good care of them and not have to worry about mistreating one of your birds. So check out your list of popular types of birds and learn more about the ones that you already know and enjoy living with.
