    i want to know the hindi names of these birds-flamingo,humming bird,eagle,bower bird, grebe, tailor bird, weaver bird

  2. Vivek Kumar says:

    Flamingo= फ़लैमिन्गो
    Humming Bird=गाने वाला पक्षी
    Eagle=गरुड़ (there is a confusion with this name as it sometimes ascribed to the kingfisher also. Not sure about it), the other name given to it is उकाब
    Bower Bird=कूँज
    Tailor Bird=बया पक्षी
    Weaver Bird=बया पक्षी(Tailor and weaver birds are taken as similar birds. In Punjabi, it is also called “bijda” but am not sure what they call it in Hindi.)

  3. dear sir,
    i want to know the hindi names of these birds- blue jay, egret, blue bird and cardinal

  4. Vivek Kumar says:

    Blue Jay is sometimes referred to नीलकण्ठ, but its English name is Indian Roller Bird. Blue Jay is American bird and can’t have a Hindi name as such.

    Egret is known as बगुला

    Bluebird also does not have a particular Hindi name because it is not native-Indian.

    Cardinal is sometimes known as लाल चिड़िया though am not sure what else they might call it.

    1. vishal says:

      cheel is kite in english but people in india confuse it with eagle(bigger than kite). kites have often forked tails. baaz is hawk in english. most of the hawks are smaller than eagles. but there are some which are bigger than smaller eagles like red tailed hawk is a big raptor of accipiter family. most of the hawks and kite dnt have broad wings like the eagles. they rather have slender and long wings.
