The African Bird Image Database has been created to bring together photographs taken in the African region of as many bird species as possible. We hope this will provide both a useful tool for researchers and a splendid collection of photographs for anyone to browse.
If you would like to register as a photographer, please click on the "About AFBID" page for easy-to-follow instructions.

Many photographers will know that we are carrying out a gentle cull of some of the older and less good images in order to improve the overall quality of images on the site. In parallel, we are reducing the number of some of the more common species to around 20 to 30 images. It may be worth your while to check the existing images to see if your image is of higher quality, shows a different view of the bird, or perhaps a different subspecies before you load it.
After you log in, please check your account email address contact information to make sure that you receive the mailings when we announce changes to the database. Thank you.
