For a foreigner it’s hard to identify birds in Bangladesh as local books often have the wrong names in English, and Western books don’t have the Bangla names. The Face of Bangla blog [2] and Jacob and Sanna's blog [3] tried to help by posting popular birds’ pictures with both Bangla and English names.
