Birds: Europe

The home team.

To the untrained eye (and that includes mine), the order here may seem more or less random. However, on the rash assumption that I’ve sorted them correctly, my sequence follows the sequencing within the Collins Bird Guide, though I’m beginning to think that an alphabetical sequence might be more manageable.
