Wild Bird Gallery was initially created to document all the birds of the world, to aid in bird ID back in 2003. But after many other great initiatives such as the Macaulay library and implementations such as Merlin Bird ID I stopped uploading images from other contributors and now only upload my own images and sounds. I will remove sub-par images to improve the quality of the site. The focus is still on the identification of species down to sub-species, age, and sex if at all possible. Some of these species have sound recordings and in the future videos with sound.

1807 species & subspecies have been indexed with their scientific names, and the common english names as per the James F. Clements checklist and will be updated with Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology changes. First update in over 15 years will be during 2023 with the October 2022 update.
