Bienvenue sur Avibase

Avibase est un système informatique complet sur toutes les espèces d'oiseaux du monde qui comporte plus de 12 millions de mentions sur 10 000 espèces et 22 000 sous-espèces, incluant des données sur leur distribution, leur taxinomie, des synonymes dans plusieurs langues et bien plus. Ce site est géré par Denis Lepage et hébergé par Études d'Oiseaux Canada, un des partenaires canadiens de Birdlife International. Je travaille sur Avibase depuis environ 1992 et je suis heureux de pouvoir offrir ce site à la communauté ornithologique (amateurs et scientifiques).

I am excited to announce a new important addition to Avibase, called myAvibase. This is a new section of the site that provides tools for planning your next birding trip and manage your own personal checklists. You can use maps and graphs to quickly see how many species can be found in a given region and at various times of year, for instance. If you import your own sightings in myAvibase, you can also view how many new species (lifers) you could add to your lifelist on your next trip and decide when and where you should go. For some additional details on the types of reports available, please click here.

People who participate in eBird can very simply import their lifelist from their eBird account with a click of a button. MyAvibase also offers more features, such as the ability to chose which taxonomy you want to follow (Clements, IOC, etc.) as well as the ability to compare your lifelist the various lists to each other. Best of all, myAvibase is available for free!. (Please understand however that I am unable to provide personalized support, and may not be able to respond to your requests for assistance).

2015-02-26: I have now integrated the content of the corrigenda to the Howard and Moore checklist, 4th edition. The errata to the first volume (covering non-passerines) was published as an appendix in the second volume (p. 653-659), which covers passerines. The corrigenda for the second volume (and additions to the corrigenda to the first), has been recently made available as a PDF download from AvesPress's web site. The corrigenda contains mainly corrections to authorship, name usage and range descriptions, and only a small number of changes in taxonomic concepts. The changes affecting names, classification species concepts are available in the Avibase comparison tool. For those interested, it is also worth noting that volume 2 contains an Excel spreadsheet with the complete list of species and subspecies from both volumes.
 
2015-02-18: I have completed a thorough review of the South American country checklists using the most recent SACC Country Lists spreadheet and the latest SACC taxonomy. I have also included several new records for Eastern Island (Chile), Robinson Cruzoe (Chile). Isla Salas y Gomez (Chile), Chiloé (Chile), Haida Gwaii (British Columbia) and more.
 
2015-02-16: I have now posted the latest update to the South American Classification Committee checklist, including all changes that have occured in the past year. Some of the changes of note include the split of the Helmetcrest (Oxypogon guerinii) into 4 species, the split of Cercomacroides fuscicauda (Riparian Antbird) from C. nigrescens, the split of Gymnopithys bicolor from G. leucaspis, the split of Hylopezus paraensis and H. whittakeri from H. macularius, the split of Sirystes sibilator into 4 species and the split of Agelaioides fringillarius from A. badius. Two newly described species are also recognized: Hemitriccus cohnhafti (Acre Tody-Tyrant) and Sporophila beltoni (Tropeiro Seedeater) and numerous other taxonomic changes are implemented, which are detailed here.
 
2015-02-14: I reviewed the checklist for Ukraine and French Guiana.
 
2015-02-14: I recently posted the latest changes to IOC checklist, version 5.01. The list of changes implemented in this version is available here. Of note is the split of the Blossomcrown (a hummingbird from South America) into Santa Marta and Andean Blossomcrowns, Plovercrest (another hummingbird) into Green-crowned and Violet-crowned, Cliff Parakeet from Monk Parakeet, Varied Tit from Japan and Taiwan into 4 species (Chestnut-bellied from Taiwan, Varied Tit from mainland Japan, Iriomote Tit from Iriomote Is. and Owston's Tit from Izu Is.), Fox Sparrow into 4 species (Red, Sooty, Slate-colored and Thick-billed), Rufous-naped Brush Finch into Yellow-breasted and Black-fronted Brush Finches, Western Whistler from Australian Golden Whistler and Louisiade Whistler from Bismarck Whistler. Two recently described species are also recognized (Boa Nova Tapaculo and Sulawesi Streaked Flycatcher).
