Passerine Birds
(Passeriformes)

 

The Passerines are the perching birds of the order Passeriformes; the order contains three clades, 128 families, and over 6,000 species (or more than half of all contemporary bird species). Passerines are distinguished from other orders of birds by the arrangement of their toes, three pointing forward and one back, which facilitates perching.
