General

The following is based on analysis of dictionaries and other sources. Comments and corrections welcome. Malaysian names are now being updated. For consistency, Vietnamese bird names (except for ducks and chickens) are preceded by the word Chim meaning 'bird'. Ornithological lists mostly omit this as understood. Hover over Green Lettering Green lettering at this site hides a tool tip with glosses, further explanations, etc. Hover cursor to reveal. to see additional information.

In Vietnamese, the coraciids are named after birds from other families. The Dollarbird is known as Chim yểng quạ 'raven myna' and the Indian Roller as Chim sả rừng 'forest kingfisher (bird)'.
