green birds

All the types of green bird species in North America are found in all different habitats. These areas range from forest to wet areas and fields, from running streams to lakeshores as well as in mountain ranges.

It is not always easy to categorize a bird species by a certain colour. This is because every year, birds change from a breeding plumage into a non-breeding plumage and vice versa. In some cases, male birds of certain species, such as the Scarlet Tanager will change from a bright red plumage to a yellowish-green plumage throughout the fall and winter months and then will resemble its female partner. This is also seen in other bird species as well.

Here is a list of different types of green birds seen in North America including native and vagrant birds;
