Bird checklists - taxonomy - distribution - maps - links
Welcome guest

There are a few ways by which you can help the development of this page.

Bird photos: I am looking for thumbnail-sized bird pictures to place on my page header. Seven pictures will be selected randomly every time the page is reloaded (try it). The name of the species, the country where the photo was taken and the name of the photographer will appear when the mouse is brought over the picture, and I can also add a link to the photographer's personal website for each photo. The more photos you provide, the better the chance of having yours displayed. Technical requirements: The thumbnail should be exactly 65 pixels high, and no more than 75 pixels wide. The bird should be large enough to be identifiable and it may be desirable to crop the photos to only show the bird's head in some cases. If you prefer to send me a larger version, I can reduce them to the correct requirements.

Bird checklists: I am continously working on the distribution data. If you have corrections or additions to make to an existing checklist, or a checklist for a new region not already covered, I'd love to hear from you.

Life-history database: One of the next addition to the page will be information about the birds life-history. I have started to compile information on clutch size, incubation period, survival rates, etc., especially for North American birds, but there is still a long way to go to cover all bird species. Any information that you can provide about life-history will be greatly appreciated.

Translations: This site is already available in several languages, and I am always interested to add new ones. If you are interested to provide a new translation, I can send you an Excel file that contains the text of this site (about 2000 words). I am also always looking for bird synonyms in other languages.

Acknowledgements

I would like to thank everyone who have helped my build Avibase over the years.

I will gladly add your name if you contact me. On the other hand if, for any reason, you prefer that your name does not appear in this list, please also let me know.
