Birds and
  Birding in



Welcome to —
the newest and largest site on the Net dedicated to
birds and birding in Venezuela!

The site was created by Chris Sharpe in April 2002 and is maintained by Dominic Hamilton of All uncredited photographs are © Jon Paul Rodríguez.

We intend this site to be a key information resource on Venezuela's birds. If you would like to contribute further information on any aspect of birds and birding in Venezuela, we would be glad to hear from you please contact us.

Recent updates include a far more comprehensive links page  and an expanded section on Books, Guides and Maps together with details of the long-awaited Birds of Venezuela by Steve Hilty.

See the Recent News for the latest on Venezuelan bird conservation and ornithology, including a brand new bird species.

Look out also for a whole raft of new photos.

Please bear with us - we both spend large amounts of time in the field away from our desks!

BirdVenezuela is organised as follows:
