Welcome to Oriental Bird Images

This Database has been created by the Oriental Bird Club (OBC) to bring together photographs of as many bird species from the Oriental Region as possible. We hope this will provide both a useful tool for researchers and a splendid collection of photographs for anyone to browse.
All images in this Database have been provided by the photographers free-of-charge in furtherance of the aims of the OBC. The OBC is very grateful for their contributions. The photographers retain the copyright to their images. If you wish to use these photos for any purpose, you must obtain their permission first.
If you have photographs which you are willing to contribute to the OBC Image Database, please email imagemaster@orientalbirdimages.org. Images should be of subspecies which occur in the Oriental Region.
(Please note: This is not a permanent archive. Older images may be deleted as better ones become available.) Please see our missing species list.
