Index of Birds


Index of birds

Index of birds encountered during my outings in the Camargue. This table includes the scientific name and family of each bird. Some species are encountered fairly frequently to very frequently, others rarely to very rarely because they are more difficult to observe and rarer.

You can select a bird family from the list at the top of the table, so that you only display birds from that family. Moreover, this table will be completed over time and following my meetings with our feathered friends.
