Birds are around us almost everywhere we go. Most people see bird but don’t pay much attention to them. There are almost 11,000 bird species in the world that can be grouped into approximately 250 families. Some bird species live only in a small section of the world and some species are practically found globally.
I was never a bird enthusiast until I started to notice the diversity of different types of bird during my travels around the world. Once I started to pay closer attention to the birds that I encountered, I discovered how beautiful some bird species are and I have started learning more about them.
During my travels and near my home I have photographed many different bird species that are dramatically different in their size, their shape, the diet that they eat and the habitat where they live. The number of bird species and the total number of photos included in this website are shown in the following table.
Clicking on the photo of the category will take you to a separate page that includes all of the birds in that category that I have photographed and that page provides more details about those birds.
