RAINFOREST BIRD TOUR: Rainforest birds photo slideshow
35 pictures of birds in the rainforest
Many of the world's 10,000 species of birds live in tropical forests for at least a portion of the year. A number of birds commonly seen in Europe and the United States — especially songbirds — migrate to the tropics during the winter.
The following slideshow presents a sampling of some of the birds found in tropical rainforests around the world.
