This is just a general point about bird photos on the Web.

I have recently completed a trawl of the Web looking for photos of all the bird spp I have seen. In all I managed to find about 800, with North America being the best served region, Europe being next best and the most frequently visited parts of Africa (SA and Kenya) and Asia (Malaysia, India) being quite well served.

However there seemed to be very few photos of Australian birds on the Web, and while this is undertandable in view of the low number of bird-watchers in Australia compared to elsewhere it is a bit disappointing, because you'd hope that good photos of Australian birds would be up on the Web somewhere and I'm sure people from other parts of the world would be looking for them too.

So I would say to people to have any reasonable pictures of Australian birds to put them up (I have a few on my web-site (address below)), a few of which aren't too bad.

However I should say that some of the most impressive bird photos on the Web full stop are Tony Palliser's.
