In the world of ornithology and bird watching, alpha codes are a shorthand for describing a specific bird. These codes are an abbreviation of a bird’s common(4 letters) or scientific(6 letters) name and are used in banding data, field notes, and other data collection projects.

Schechter Natural History’s Bird Codes is a simple tool to look up bird reporting codes for the ABA and AOU.*

Features include
* Quick search and bird lookup
* Sort by common name, scientific name, or code
* Toggle between viewing a list of birds included in the AOU or the ABA

We hope you find the Schechter Natural History’s Bird Codes to be a helpful tool for your outdoor adventures and a fun and informative reference for home use.

*The American Ornithologists’ Union (AOU) includes birds recorded in North America, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean region. Whereas the American Birding Association (ABA) only contains birds in North America.

Handy reference tool

This is a perfect reference for clarification of 4 letter bird codes. There are several species that can be confused. This app removes the guesswork. I highly recommend this convenient reference.
