Introduction :

The primary aim of developing this photographic database is to assist bird watching beginners in identifying the birds of Hong Kong. However, this database could at best serve as a supplement to the field guide "Birds of Hong Kong and South China". This database is so far incomplete and only around 50% of the c.450 species of birds of Hong Kong are available. Should you be interested in donating images to this database, please visit the "Missig images" page.
