Select the sort mode to control how birds are listed; by first name last name, or by last name first name. Last, First allows you to see birds grouped by family. To find a bird simply type its name into the suggestion box above the bird name menu. As you type the menu shrinks as it attempts to find a bird with the same spelling. Once you find the bird either click its name or scroll to it with the Up and Down Arrow keys, then click on the name or press the Return key.

To use the Location filter type a state or province or body of water such as an ocean or coast, or scroll through the list of locations. When you find your location click to select it. The main list of birds will be filtered to just those in the selected location. The number of birds will be displayed to the right of the bird name menu. Click the number of birds to reset the search and start over.

To filter by shape select the shape filter and then select one of the 14 bird shapes. To filter by color select the color filter and select a color. Each filter uses the list of birds from the previous filter so the selection process narrows down the birds in the name list.
