Bird Pictures

Last update 15 May 2017

This part of the site contains my collection of bird pictures. At the moment I have pictures of 780 species, some very good by my standards, some barely recognizable. The site is automatically created from my picture collection. This is a work in progress, not all links work, some pictures occur more than once, and most pictures have no description. When a description exists, it is written in Dutch.

Birds species are classified in orders, families and species. This classification used to be based on behaviour and looks, but now is mostly based on DNA research, and the new insights cause changes to the classification over time. This site uses the names and classification from the IOC World Bird List, Version 3.5.
