Tanzanian Birds & Butterflies

The bird section of this website displays over 9000 images of 944 Tanzanian bird species. Most were taken in Tanzania; some, in other countries where ranges cross borders. The site may be searched from a list of common names, by taxonomic order or by using the search box.

When available there is a link to a distribution map from the Tanzania Bird Atlas or a breeding range map from The Copenhagen Database of the Zoological Museum at the University of Copenhagen. For many species there are also links to bird calls.

The Adobe Flash player is used on many webpages. Flash cannot be viewed on the Apple iPad; however, some non-flash images are shown for every species and we are slowly changing the flash to javascript slideshows, viewable on Apple products.

The photographs in the butterfly section are courtesy of Trude Peterson and Colin Beale. This section includes a page of thumbnail photos to help with identification. Enjoy!
