A great big thank you to all that have helped in this project.

We have tested many site search engines, some worked to a point, others didn't work at all. http://www.freefind.com/ is faultless and their service is outstanding.

I would like to thank all my friends at Flickr I have formed a group called ^The Friends Of Worldbirds* 40 members after two weeks is brilliant. Join now I will be doing more individual testimonials as time allows.

We have over 1200 members and four researchers.

Not just credits but many thanks to all the people that have helped me and to my wife for putting up with my (I'm stuck for the right word but it may be) affliction, obsession.

There are so many people that have helped me with this site that I feel to start mentioning them I must miss someone. First mention must go to Arthur Grosset whose generous nature and enthusiasm becomes apparent to anyone visiting his site, which is a must for any birder.

Charles Lam was the first person to offer me any words of encouragements for that I will always be grateful. His bird photo's and video are excellent and his love of music is apparrent to anyone who watches his videos. His bug and butterfly photo's and video are incredible. 

Brad Martin http://www.bradmartinphotos.com/ another  must see site.

Jean-Guy takes some fantastic photo's in the winderness in Canada. He has been very helpful and has an obvious enthusiasm and a generous nature.

Fernando zamora has been a great help to me and like many of the contacts I now look upon him as a friend. He has taken some great video which are well presented.

Joaquim Antunes has some wonderful photo's of mainly European birds. He maintains a very high standard and has a happy nack of getting the birds to stand in a perfect pose.

Fabulous photo collection from Ian Futton African, Asian and European species

I am using the following books for reference:

Roberts' Birds of Southern Africa. Simply the best Book on the subject. Pact full of info.  

Howell and Webb A Guide to the birds of Mexico and Northern Central America. An excellent book but a lot of birds are not illustrated.
A field Guide to the Birds of the Indian Subcontinent by Krys Kazmierczak  A very useful book well illustrated by Ber van Perlo
Simpson & Day Field Guide to the Birds of Australia  Good illustrations and lots of info.
Collins Bird Guide A lot more info than most bird guides pictures are small but of good quality.

Arkive for photos, picture gallery, sound recordings, video and bird data, checklists etc. Field guide images of over 9,000 species. Checklists covering all bird species and most of the worlds countries.
