Tropical rainforests are home to many kinds of birds, including parrots, hornbills, toucans, and raptors like eagles, hawks, and vultures.

Some migratory birds live in rainforests during the winter and return to cooler regions during the spring and summer. For example, many songbirds that nest in the United States winter in Central America or even the Amazon.

Below you will find profiles for a few rainforest birds as well as a selection of photos. Please note there is more extensive information about rainforest birds, including specific species, at the main rainforest site.
