Birds That Start With L

Stumped by birds beginning with letter L? Don’t worry – there are plenty of options! Take the lark, for instance. Adorned in brown and black feathers, its chirp is unmistakable.

Another notable species is the loon; they can be found near lakes and rivers, emitting a distinct ‘ooh-laa’ song.

But perhaps the most iconic bird of all is the bald eagle – its wingspan can reach up to eight feet wide, and its white head and tail feathers make it a stunning sight to behold.

So remember: lark, loon and eagle!
