On this website you will find 3x3 composites of single frames (freeze frames) from videos of the majority of bird species of the Western Palearctic and Nearctic, and collections from Ethiopia, Northern India (under construction) and Australia (under construction), filmed from 1985 onwards with improving equipment from analogue to HD digital and focal lengths between 2000 to 16 000mm.
