Browsing the Galleries

Each photo gallery is a collection of one or more photos of a single species. Species are organised into their taxonomic families by way of global family index pages that contain one thumbnail image for each species. Families are organised in taxonomic sequence by previous and next links between the global index pages.

You can access the family index pages by using the thumbnails in the Quick Visual Links to Families above, or by searching for English bird names in either the Global or Australasian Alphabetical Index pages:

These Alphabetic Indexes are accessible using the drop down Menu at the top left of all mobile friendly pages (all pages created or revised since October 2015).

The global index pages are supplemented, where appropriate, by regional index pages contain subsets of the global thumbnails to show which species occur in each of the major regions: Australasia; the New World (the Americas) and the Old World (Eurasian and Africa).

The background colours of these regional family thumbnails are as follows:
