Birds of Europe - Family groups

We follow here the convention adopted in the "Field Guide to Australian Birds" by Michael Morcombe , in which all bird families are collected into 26 family groups. The sub-division into 26 family groups is done only for convenience and the way it is done in detail has no scientific background.

Every species seen by us is listed in an index of bird names.

This table still needs to be created. For preliminary information, hover your cursor above the clickable family group numbers in the second-tier header above.

No introduced species are listed.
