Species search

Use the Quick search above to search for species based on their scientific name, common name, family, genus or common family name (eg. Hummingbirds).

To search for species based on the additional attributes below please click the + to the right of the appropriate section and tick the condition you wish to apply (leave blank to retrieve all species).

Note: Ticking more than one option for habitat, for example, retrieves species occurring in any or all of the habitats selected. However, adding conditions for several variables restricts the search. For example, choosing a habitat and a threat will only retrieve species occurring in that habitat and affected by that threat.

Include taxa that are either not recognised or under review by the BirdLife Taxonomic Working Group?
