Birds That Start With R

Have you ever heard the sound of a red-winged blackbird? These birds can be identified by their characteristic caw-like calls and vibrant song. But, that’s not the only bird starting with the letter R! Ravens, robins, roadrunners, and more can all be found too.

What other types of birds are there? Roseate spoonbills have pinkish heads and ruffled grouse resemble large chickens. Raptors like red-tailed hawks and rough-legged buzzards also inhabit the environment, though without any white feathers as seen on bald eagles.

In Mexico there is a special type of hummingbird known as the rufous which has an orange belly and striped wings. Ringed kingfishers may also be spotted near rivers or lakes searching for food or roosting in small colonies.

Let’s help protect these feathered creatures for future generations! Donating excess birdseed and building nesting boxes in gardens can attract them so everyone can experience them long into the future.
