Extractions: Someone went to a lot of work and did a great job! It is easier to identify an unknown bird if you can narrow your choices. I suppose that it is theoretically possible that any of the 10,200 species of birds of the world may be in your back yard right now! It is highly unlikely that one of them is an Emperor Penguin or an Emu. It is more likely that the bird is one that has already been seen in your area. You can start with a list of the birds of your state or province. The links to the right can show you all the birds that have been seen. Remember, these state/province checklists include some very rare birds that have been seen only once or twice in your area. But you have still managed to limit your choices to 400-600 species at most. You can narrow your choices even further. Find a local checklist of birds in your area. Audubon Chapters or State Parks will often have checklists showing local seasonal abundance. These checklists may include 200-300 species. You started your search by considering all the birds of the world and already you narrowed your choices down to just 2-3% of the birds of the world!

Extractions: Birds in Nature - images of wild birds by Richard Ditch This page lists my bird photos in checklist order, the way most experienced birders expect to see birds listed. Checklist order is based on taxonomic relationships of related species, so thrashers and mockingbirds appear close to each other, etc. Most field guides base their structure on this same taxonomic order. If you prefer selecting from another list, try either my alphabetic order selector or my location selector page - all three methods contain links to all the same images. The most recent posts can also be seen. A much shorter list that avoids redundant and weaker images is made up of my favorites.
Extractions: Commentary: Taken within a half mile of our house, and within a quarter mile of the White-winged Doves on this site. We've watched these owls court on the hill top nearby in April, listened to them call in the early morning hours, and even had one on the street lamp in front of our house one Christmas night. But I only discovered this daytime roost recently when I spotted whitewash on the crest near my White-winged Dove location. That evening I got to watch a juvenile bird in the immediate area, and the following day I found this location, occupied by a single adult bird. Two evenings later when I took my wife to see the adult, we found these three juveniles instead. At dusk they flew down and waited for an adult to feed them. This roost is on the shaded side of this hill, but even then it is extremely hot when temps reach 110 degrees, and it was hard to watch these birds panting through my 30x spotting scope. This is as close as I could get - the property is fenced and very rugged as can be seen. Although a tight shot (such as this adult) of the three birds would be nice, I think this overview is just as interesting as it shows the rugged locale and tells a lot about the life style of these impressive birds.

Extractions: Peru's Manu Biosphere Reserve has the highest concentration of bird life on Earth. At the time of writing approximately, 925 species have been recorded. Ornitholigists expect this figure to break the 1000 mark in the near future as remoter areas of the reserve are explored. There are a little under 9000 species of birds in the world, meaning Manu holds one in every nine species found on the planet. No other protected area on Earth contains so many birds. The Biosphere Reserve encompasses a great variety of altitudinal zones and habitat types. Altitudes vary from over 4000 meters above sea level in the high Andes down to 350 meters in the lowland Amazonian rain forest. For every 1000 meters gained or lost, the structure of the bird communities differs. This altitudinal variation, coupled with the variety of forest types, grasslands, lakes, and micro-habitats such as bamboo stands, reed-beds, and treefalls, has produced the highest bird count for any area in the world. Manu is a birdwatchers paradise and many eco-tourists visit the reserve specifically to watch birds.

Buckley Radar and Acoustic Location of Birds Now funded by the Directorate of Environmental Services, National Defence Canada, this project has yielded one Master's Thesis and currently has one Ph. D. student involved. Many weeks of measurements have been made at the Prince Edward Point Migratory Bird Sanctuary, both of the fall migration of songbirds, and, for calibration purposes, overpasses of a C130 Hercules aircraft. As well as having application for the identification of critical migratory stopover habitat, the results of this work may have direct applicability to airport safety.
