Hi All,

As you may be aware the current Australasian Bird Image Database ( has been up and running for over a year now, and we have nearly 2300 images of approximately 718 of the 1550 species. This equates to about 46%.

I've just had a quick look through and of the species which can be found in Australia we are still short of about 130. I've made a list of these and included it below, if you have good quality images of any of these (prints or digital) we would love to display them on the ABID. I realise that most are rare and difficult to photograph but there are some that are surprisingly missing. (ie. Grey Plover, Little Crow, Red-browed Treecreeper etc)

Please have a 'surf' of the site and let me know if you can help out,

Look forward to hearing from you,

Tom Tarrant
