The aim of this web page is to show the many different types of gray birds. Firstly, identified by their mostly gray coloured plumage and then by their more distinctive features. Gray coloured birds are found in most families of bird species, including gnatcatchers, thrushes, vireos and so on. For a birder, who is just starting out, the colour of the bird will probably be the first piece of information that will be used in trying to put a name to the bird. Some gray coloured birds may appear to have black plumage depending on the available light or even being seen in bright sunshine.
