|A number of techniques were used to identify the various birding "hotspots"
in the United Kingdom, Central America, the Caribbean, Africa, Europe,
Australia and the South Pacific, Asia and the Middle East. No lists of

Please provide comments via the button found throughout these pages if you disagree on the choice of website for a particular birding hotspot, or your favorite "hotspot" was omitted. If there is no good website on the WWW for your favorite birding location, take up the challenge and write one! Just remember to let me know where to find it to add it to these web pages. E-mail should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Pause your cursor on the picture to see the bird's identification. For those countries with no national bird identified, please let me know if you are aware of the national bird for that country. When searching for the "national bird" for many of these countries, the only web references which could be turned up were "the national bird of X is the construction crane". Funny the first time, but not so funny after a hundred repetitions!

Unfortunately, the only prize for getting it right is the satisfaction of knowing you're a very good birder (or at least, you know your gulls)!
