DNA barcoding has been proposed as a promising tool for the rapid species identification in a wide range of animal taxa. In this study, the ~648 bp mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit  (CO) gene of 61 individuals from 32 bird species was analyzed. Bapplying three methods (distance based method, monophyly-based method, and diagnostic characters)our result shows that CO is able to distinguish all species studied. The present study validated the effectiveness of barcoding for the identification of birds.
