This area of the Open Directory is for sites about domestic bred birds, mostly kept as pets, written in English. Sites about wild birds can be found in the Recreation/Outdoors/Wildlife/Birds area, and sites about landfowl and waterfowl are found in Science/Agriculture/Animals/Birds/Poultry, and Home/Rural_Living/Hobby_Farms/Poultry. If the site is not in English then please look in World for the proper language and submit the site in there instead.
Please submit only sites in English about domestic bred bird species which are mostly kept as pets, such as parrots, pigeons, finches, doves and the like.
