Tanzanian Birds & Butterflies

















This website is about photos. It displays 10,000+ photos of 970 Tanzanian bird species and 224 butterfly species. Most were taken in Tanzania; some, in other countries where ranges cross borders. The bird section may be searched from a list of common names, by taxonomic order or by using the search box; the butterflies, from a list of scientific names or a photo ID page.

There are distribution maps from the Tanzania Bird Atlas and breeding range maps from The Copenhagen Database of the Zoological Museum at the University of Copenhagen, and links to bird calls at xeno-canto and Cornell University's Macaulay Library.

Considerable effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of bird and butterfly identifications. If you question an identification, please let us know through our contact email at the bottom of this page.

Enjoy!
