The World’s Richest Information
Resource about Birds for Birders

Fatbirder is the premier birders’ web resource about birds, birding and birdwatching. Whether you are looking for facts about hummingbirds, songbirds, shorebirds or raptors in your backyard or are planning a trip or birding tour anywhere in the world Fatbirder is the site for you.

There are tens of thousands of links on two thousand pages about birding everywhere; a page for every country & state & every bird family.

It’s all here from RSPB wildlife reserves or Audubon bird sanctuaries to the best bird watching binoculars and spotting scopes. There are page sections on books, guides, forums, reserves, accommodation, trip report, bird clubs and more as well as pages on topics such as ornithology, twitching, endangered species, conservation, equipment, pelagics, birding holidays and much more.

Fatbirder benefits hugely from the contributions of birders, photographers, ornithologists and birdwatchers from all over the world. Local birders wrote most country and state introductions, and Fatbirder users took most of the photographs featured. As always, we welcome feedback and suggestions.
