Tanzanian Birds & Butterflies

This website displays over 10,000 photos of 954 Tanzanian bird species and 175 butterfly 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.

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

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