This order is also known as Passerines, meaning the birds have 3 toes forward and 1 backward while perching and are often very vocal. Many of these birds can be identified by their song. Songbirds that we see in our hospital range from tiny Wrens, Bluebirds, Chickadees, Finches, Waxwings, and Swallows to larger Robins, Thrushes, Magpies, Jays, Crows, and Shrikes. Not all small birds are considered Passerines, however, such as Woodpeckers, Pigeons, Hummingbirds, as they are in orders of their own.
