This IS THE MOST Extensive Bird Photo Gallery - over 835 Bird species (by one photographer)
on the Internet - photographed in North America north of the Mexican border.
There is no other, although a couple state these words, because they don't have
species images FROM North America but taken on other continents.
PLUS - over 1,400 species of Birds, Mammals, and other species from North America
and Eastern Asia (China, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong)



Enjoy the beauty of many North America's and eastern Asian birds and mammals!
Including a number of the rarest North American birds from places like:
Attu Island, Alaska, Gambell, St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, St. Paul Island, Pribilofs, Alaska, Texas,
SE Arizona, Florida, Bahamas, and my home state of California.

And, special galleries of the Birds of Japan, China, Hong Kong, Bahamas, and Thailand.

All species web pages are in the format (all lower case - very important!!):

IMPORTANT UPDATE NOTICE ABOUT OUR WEBSITE:

GALLERY IMAGES HAVE NOT BEEN UPDATED FOR SIX YEARS

PLEASE GO TO IMAGE SPECIES PAGES (by Species)

IMAGE SPECIES (Link)



I am Not adding any new images to the specific group galleries  (i.e. Hummingbirds, Owls, Shorebirds, etc.)
until I complete getting ALL the individual SPECIES web pages completed.
SO, all GALLERY Pages are very old now (some over 6 years)

For INDIVIDUAL SPECIES PAGES:
http://www.tsuru-bird.net/a_species/robin_american
(use this format)
Examples:
http://www.tsuru-bird.net/a_species/sparrow_american_tree
http://www.tsuru-bird.net/a_species/wood-rail_rufous-necked
http://www.tsuru-bird.net/a_species/warbler_black-throated_blue
(REMEMBER -all lower case-)


I am finally almost done (adding a few that need to be scanned from slides)
after completing everything "A" thru "Y" (Yellowthroat) species into their individual
SPECIES web pages.

Use the "IMAGE LIST" link to search the species you want to view.

Because of this the "GALLERIES" web pages are becoming more and more out of date.

NOTE:  Many websites show those beautiful and "pretty" pictures, which are obviously wonderful.
However, I've attempted to lean toward images which give more of a 'learning' experience
by showing species as they are MOST often seen.  Do you ALWAYS see them in breeding plumage
with the sun behind you, sitting sideways, and perfectly still?  No.  So when you see a bird with its head
turned away, or not in perfect spring breeding plumage, or a perfect look, what do you do?
Look at the Pretty Pictures?
No, you'd hope to find somewhere that will give you some images that show other
angles and more 'typical' views of a bird so you can ID it.  And, females and
immature individuals as well, not just breeding males.
This is not a site for just pretty pictures - I really hope that people can learn from my images.

That has been my focus on this website.  Learning - not just Pretty Pictures.
