Birds Photographed in their Natural Habitats

Parts of this webpage has been replaced by my new responsive website – refers. I've grouped my bird images by habitat, where I photographed them and then into collections by ecozone/country and taxonomic rank. For each bird image, I've identified its taxonomic order, family, genus, species and common name. Where known or of interest I've added gender, IUCN red list status (if threatened) and check list status items such as endemic, resident and migrant data.
