Welcome to World Bird Photos

Relaunched early 2022, this new look web site also has a HELP page. It is a growing collection of bird photos that started in 2003. Currently it lists some 2,601 species consisting of 8,700 images all recorded in the field. Photos taken in 37 countries include: Africa, Europe, Indian Sub Continent, Malaysia, China, Southern and Central America, Mexico, Polynesia, Australasia as well as both the Arctic and Antarctic.

Thanks and enjoy the views: Peter

STOP PRESS: I have added a new selection ‘Distribution of Global Species’ that illustrates birds photographed in the most diverse regions. The latest posting: during July22 we toured around Svalbard of the Arctic Circle as far as N81’18”; seeing 30 species and breeding habitats. Now editing Morocco birds but added a few from Cape Town 5th Nov.
