Birding Sites - Call for Assistance

Birdpedia - Australia is always looking for new birding sites (currently, 6044). This is a call for birders to pick one or two (or more) in your area and add them, along with a field trip report.

If you visit that site often and feel you would like to take over maintenance of that record so that others can get assistance from your knowledge then apply to become administrator of that birding site. Just locate the site in the Reserves list (click on Reserves in left margin), click on the title of that reserve and send us a communication via the link at the bottom of the details page. Administrators can even add species directly without having to enter a field trip report.

The aim to to make Birdpedia - Australia your first stop for information about birding locations throughout the country and with your help we can make it a reality.

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Martyn.

Need a Species List for Australia

If you are looking for a complete listing of all bird species you can download one from Birdpedia...

The list is in HTML format but a link to an XML version (ZIP file) can be found at the bottom of the list.

Species Database

Do you want to find out more about a particular species? Then consult the Birdpedia Field Guide. The Field Guide contains information on all the species of the world (uses a combination of BirdLife International and Sibley & Monroe taxonomies).

Use the Birds link in the top menu or the Species Database link in the left menu or click Locate Species. If you cannot find information on a particular species let us know and we will make it a priority to update that species account as soon as possible.
