    Bird Silhouettes

    One of the first clues to bird identification is size. The bird silhouettes provide a quick life-sized reference for some common birds with identifiable physical characteristics. Recognizing a crown, a forked tail or posture of correctly-sized bird helps to create confidence by building the correct search image.

    Mammal Silhouettes

    The mammal silhouettes provide a quick life-sized reference based on identifiable physical characteristics such as thickness and length of the body and/or tail, and the shape of a head. When placed or displayed in a location that mimics the behavior of the mammal, you are creating the correct search image. For example, with similar sized mammals, you are likely to find a marmot on the ground and a gray squirrel up in a tree.
