WELCOME TO THE BIRDS OF INDIA WEBSITE!
This website is expected to complement rather than compete with major Indian and global projects such as GBIF, eBird, iNaturalist, Oriental Bird Images, Avibase, and India Biodiversity Portal, just like the Birds of North America works along with eBird. We welcome ideas (email us) about ways to integrate this Birds of India website with these existing projects so that we contribute to the global information while maintaining the regional needs of biodiversity informatics.
This website is a sister of the Butterflies of India, Moths of India, Cicadas of India, Odonata of India, Reptiles of India and Amphibians of India websites, which are designed to disseminate comprehensive information on various aspects of the biology of Indian faunas, encourage their observation to study their natural history and ecology, gather population and distributional data in a centralized database, and spread awareness about their conservation.
