About Australian Birds
A Continent Varied In Land And Bird Life
We are a new website featuring Australian Birds and though there are many already online we hope to make it easier for our visitors to find and identify the more common birds of the country and hopefully some of the more 'exotic' ones as well.
Our work centers around the website building expertise of two of our members and the photographic exploits of some very professional photographers as well as some rather decent shots from our amateur friends as well. Gotta love digital photography!
Indentify Australian Birds
We are putting together a website with specific lists of the groups of Australian Birds by types and species. By grouping the birds the way we have designed the site we hope it will be easier to Find Australian Birds.
A growing number of photos and data will also help our visitors understand the great variety and groups of birds in Australia.

Types of Birds Found in Australia
Endemic Bird species are those known to occur naturally within one country only.
Resident Birds are those that have both their major feeding habitat and breeding habitat in the same area. A Resident Bird is different to an Endemic Bird in that the same bird species may be found in different countries, eg Pelican.
Migratory Birds are those that fly often large distances from their breeding habitat, mostly in the Northern Hemisphere's summer, to their major feeding habitat in the warmer Southern Hemisphere's summer.
Most birds that migrate to Australia and New Zealand are Shore Birds like some plovers, sandpipers, stints, godwits, curlews, snipes and the Eurasian Whimbrel.
Vagrant Birds are usually Migratory Birds which have migrated to Australia for any number of reasons still not fully understood.
An example of a Vagrant Migratory Bird is the Hudsonian Godwit which usually breeds in North America and Alaska and migrates to South America but has been seen in Australia at times.
