Yeah, you should definitely get a field guide for wherever you live and just leaf through it to familiarise yourself with what birds you have around you. Also look up what sort of habitats you have where you live, that way you know if you should be looking for shorebirds and herons if you live near water, or passerines if you live near forests, etc.
If you aren't familiar with phylogenetic trees and how living beings are sorted into species, genus, family, order, kingdom, phylum, etc. you should look it up first to avoid confusion.
This site has every bird species organised phylogenetically: https://birdsoftheworld.org/bow/species
I suggest looking to see what birds you find interesting or familiar and investigating that family— seeing its different members, what they look like, what they eat, where they are distributed. If you're interested, you will develop a good knowledge base of bird forms in your area (or wherever interests you). Eventually you will get a feel for it and be able to identify birds quickly.
