Parts of this webpage has been replaced by my new responsive website – rayplowman.co.uk/birds/ refers.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.
Forest and Garden Habitat (1)
The first grouping of forest and garden habitat webpages feature several image collections of New World (Neotropic ecozone) bird species that include images of several families of oscine and suboscine passerines and a few images from different orders and families of non-passerines. One Nearctic species is featured on this webpage..
Forest and Garden Habitat (2)
The second collection of forest and garden habitat webpages feature bird species I photographed in the Old-World; Afrotropic, Australasian, Palearctic and Indomalaya ecozones.
It includes three webpages featuring:
(a) Australasian oscine passerines and a New Zealand wren;
(b) Old World oscine and suboscine passerines;
(c) Old World, including Australasia non-passerines.
The Australasian birds were photographed in New Zealand and the Australian states of South Australia, Victoria, and New South Wales. Old World oscine passerines and non-passerines birds in the Indian Ocean Islands, Singapore and Malaysia.
Marine and coastal habitat webpages feature images of birds photographed in the Old-World (Palearctic and Australasian ecozones). The birds were photographed on the shore or in coastal waters and include images of albatross (Diomedeidae family) and shearwater (Procellariidae family), penguin (Spheniscidae family) and auks (Alcidae family).
This second set of wetland and coastal habitat birds feature several image galleries of cosmopolitan, native to one region or country endemic bird species photographed in the Afrotropic, Australasia, Indomalaya, Neotropic, and Palearctic ecozones. The species are waders, gulls, terns (several families), waterfowl (Anatidae family) and rails and coots (Rallidae family).
