Välkommen till Avibase

Avibase är en databas över alla världens fågelarter. Innehåller nästan 12 miljon poster med information om 10 000 arters och 22 000 underarters utbredning, taxonomi, namn med mera. För design och uppdatering ansvarar Denis Lepage. Bakom projektet står "Bird Studies Canada" som ingår i Birdlife International. Arbetet med Avibase har pågått i nästan 15 år och det känns bra att nu kunna erbjuda denna service till alla intresserade.

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).

2014-09-26: With the second volume of Howard and Moore 4th edition due very shortly, I have been working on mapping the revised taxonomy into Avibase. I was very happy to be a major contributor in the production of both volumes and look forward to continue playing a role in keeping the list up to date in the future. With more than 10 years elapsed since the publication of the 3rd, one would clearly expect this to be a major update, particularly given the speed at which our understanding of bird taxonomy is currently changing. I can already say that changes have been affecting more than half of all taxa (species and subspecies) in one way or another, and this is not accounting for changes to citations (authors and year of publication), something that Dickinson and his team have been painstakingly examining. The H&M4 version should be integrated within Avibase within a few weeks, but I encourage you to order a copy of the 2 volumes if you have any interest in bird taxonomy. In addition to the list of name itself, the book includes detailed range descriptions for all species and subspecies, accurate citation information, and thoroughly detailed footnotes with thousands of references.
 
2014-09-26: I have now completed an update of the latest Clements 6.9 and related eBird 1.55 taxonomies. This was a major update with changes affecting some 1873 taxa (species or subspecies): 608 changes of family, 264 changes affecting common names, 572 changes affecting scientific names and some changes affecting some 530 taxonomic concepts (splits or lumps of species and/or subspecies, new species or subspecies descriptions, and reassignments of subspecies). An explanation of the various changes is available from the Clements checklist website and you can also use the Avibase taxonomic comparison tool for comparisons affecting the species level.

The eBird taxonomy included all of the same taxonomic changes, in addition to a number of new recognizable forms (e.g. hybrids, subspecies groups, spuhs and slashes). An article on the updates implemented in 2014 is available on the eBird eBird website and you can also use the Avibase taxonomic comparison tool for a complete comparison.
