This online bird guide consists of over 2700 bird species. Physical characteristics, habitat, migration, distribution and more is described. Almost every page contains a video, sound fragment, picture and distribution map. For most species scientific literature is available, the articles are in pdf format for you to download.
All European species have been added, as well over 550 North American species. The latter is by no means complete, but a work in progress.
To extend our scope we added for some bird orders all species. We included all raptors (accipitriformes), all owls (strigiformes) and falcons (falconiformes) as well as all herons, storks and allies (ciconiiformes), all ducks and allies (anseriformes) and all petrels, albatrosses and allies (procellariiformes). Finally we added two smaller and more obscure orders, the trogons (trogoniformes) and the tinamous (tinamiformes). This section covers just over 1000 species including every true bird of prey in the World! Read an introduction [here]
