Coming soon ...

The Bird Identification Gallery is an exciting initiative – designed as a resource to enhance the species identification skills of our members. The gallery will house high quality images of adult males and females, immatures, juveniles, and plumage morphs (breeding/non-breeding plumage, eclipse plumage and published regional variations), and under-wing patterns. These images will provide a continuing updated photographic resource that currently is only available by purchasing a published photographic guide book. Populating this gallery with the highest quality images for identification will also provide our members with an ongoing opportunity to capture and have their images displayed as some of the best for field identification of Australian birds.

Digital images suitable for this gallery will have a clear set of identifiable criteria developed for facilitating species field identification. These criteria are being developed by an appointed Bird Identification Gallery Committee.

Images for this gallery will be selected from the New Images Gallery, the Main Library, and the past and current competition galleries.

The total number of images for each species will be kept to a minimum to facilitate a readily searchable resource. The preferred number of images is up to 20, as this is the (default) number of images that are displayed on a single image thumbnail page. For some of the more complex species more than 20 images may be required, but the maximum number will not exceed 40 images.

The Previous Bird ID Challenge galleries also provide notes on identification; you may find it useful to visit these for the sets of birds that have been used in past challenges.
