*When Claire was visiting Carole Littleton, her mother, migratory birds were briefly visible on the television.  {{crossref}}
*Birds can be heard several times throughout the series, usually preceding the arrival of The Monster.
*Juliet showed Ben a pile of various dead birds outside of the Hydra building that contained Room 23, beneath a boarded up window. Walt was inside Room 23 at that time. The dead birds included various parrots, various doves/pigeons, possible corvids (crow-like), and debatable larids (gulls). The gulls were '''not''' the same species as caught by Claire in {{ep}}. {{crossref}}
*In the Lost (non-canon) novelization ''Endangered Species'', Faith Harrington recorded seeing an extinct Paradise Parrot on the Island. It was later revealed in the book that there was a group of the birds.

===Birds identifiable by calls===
In the background of almost every Lost episode, various bird calls can be heard, providing a challenge of aural identification not for the faint of heart.

*wikipediaLoons, possibly the Pacific Loon (''Gavia pacifica'')
*Dove - likely Spotted Doves or Zebra Doves, as these are the predominant dove species in areas of Hawaii where ''Lost'' is filmed.
