Passeriformes: Tyrannids-Alaudids

The Passeriformes are the largest order of birds.  They make up the perching birds.  There are birds that perch that aren’t Passeriformes and there are Passeriformes that don’t perch.  They are also called songbirds but once again this doesn’t necessarily fit.  These birds are usually identified by family and that is the grouping we will focus on here.
