A list of photographed Bird species from:
North America, Hawai'i, Bahamas, Japan, China, Thailand, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Hong Kong
including many Mammals, Cetaceans (Whales), Herps, Odonata, and Reptiles
Now updated to AOU 57th Supplement July, 2016 so way behind and trying to get caught back up
2023 Checklist is now available so need to update order of species to reflect this

Photographing birds and animals for over 60 straight
years and hopefully many more to come

On the web since 1996 (over 27 years and counting)

ALL images are by the photographer above (free, wild, & unrestrained - not from zoos nor captive)

--  Over 70,000 stock slide images available --
-- Over 1,000,000 stock digital images available --

- Over 936 Bird Species Photographed in the ABA (including Hawai'i) - Seen 954
- Over 898 Bird Species Photographed in the ABA (not including Hawai'i) - Seen 904
- Over 2,200 Species Photographed in the World -
- Now over 29,000 individual images already on this website -
Please ask if you are looking for a particular species image (of anything) as at this moment
there are literally thousands of images to be readied for the website

Totally wild, unrestrained, and established and accepted species.
NO "Zoo" Birds, escaped cage birds, Old McDonald's Farm birds
For those wanting to have a true and honest list that are
scrutinized by the American Birding Association and the American Ornithological Society
go to those sources to find species that are truly countable
American Birding Association
American Ornithological Society

There are images of some of these for reference ONLY, and stated such, but not counted on my personal list.

Please ask if you are looking for a particular species image (of anything) as at this moment
there are literally thousands of images being readied for the website

   although there are some species that are listed also under geographical areas such as Ecuador


First, the format I use:
All species web pages are in the following format (all lower case - very important!):

Second, to do a Search:
Press the  CTRL key and then the "F" key
this will bring up a SEARCH box
so you can search for a species name!
-on Windows machines-



Although my life long passion has been to photograph every bird and mammal species in North America
and eastern Asia and some Central and South American countries including the Bahamas
I've also wanted to assemble enough images on one website for all to learn from.
With this goal I've already attained the largest photo list of bird species from
North America (north of Mexico) than anyone, and continue to strive to
add more species but also continue to add more images altogether.

Please Enjoy the beauty of many of North America's, Central America, and South America
along with some Bahamas and eastern Asia birds and mammals!
As well as some Butterflies, Odonata, and Herpes, Insects, Spiders, and Snakes.

Including a number of the rarest North American birds from places like:
Attu Island, Alaska, Gambell, St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, St. Paul, Pribilof Islands, Alaska, Adak, Alaska,
Texas, SE Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Bahamas, and my home state of California.

And, special galleries of Thailand, Bahamas, the Birds of Japan, China, Hong Kong, Ecuador, and Costa Rica.

NOTE:  Many websites show those beautiful and "pretty" pictures, which are obviously wonderful.

BUT I don't see many photos which one can really learn much about a particular species.  As they are those
'pretty' pictures that show the nearly perfect side angle of a male in full breeding plumage for example.

And searching on the internet what you often find, are only Male images in Breeding Plumage,
as these are the "Pretty" pictures.  Finding images of males in non-breeding plumage,
juvenal males, juvenal females, or females, are almost Non-existent on the internet
if you wish to see what they look like!  AND, it seems that a huge percentage
of images found on the internet are Photoshop'd, Super Over Saturated
images which do not look like the same species you find in real life!

I am continually working on adding images of all species from all angles in all plumages daily. And as many images
of differing plumages, male / females / young, and angles (such as straight up the back shots).

I've been a birder / photographer now for over 63 years (now in my 70's) and anyone who is out in the field watching birds knows
full well that easily 95+% of the time you DO NOT get the 'picture perfect full breeding male sideways' views!!

So when you see a bird with it's head turned away, or not in perfect spring breeding plumage, or a perfect look,
or only a back view, what do you do?  If you see a fall molting warbler what do you do? When you see a hatch year
bird that doesn't look like its adult what do you do? Or the female of many species?

PRETTY pictures do little to help one learn bird identification much - thus this website to help others.

My focus on this website and my lifelong passion:


I continually work on images of all species from all angles in all plumages.
And continually adding images nearly daily at times. To share them
here for you to Learn and Enjoy.

downloadable and do not represent the quality of the originals in any way.

Image ratings are for my best image, not necessarily the linked image
Please ask if you are looking for a particular species or image
