Tanzanian Birds & Butterflies

This website is about photos with 12,000+ photos of 1046 Tanzanian bird species and 414 butterfly species/subspecies. Most were taken in Tanzania; some, in other countries where ranges cross borders. The bird section may be searched from a list of common names, by taxonomic order or by using the search box; the butterflies, from a list of scientific names or a photo ID page.

There are distribution maps from the Tanzania Bird Atlas and breeding range maps from The Copenhagen Database of the Zoological Museum at the University of Copenhagen, and links to bird calls at xeno-canto.

Considerable effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of bird and butterfly identifications. If you question an identification, please let us know through our contact email at the bottom of this page.
