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.

NB May 2019 Fatbirder decided that after two decades of amending its existing code it was time to move to a ‘future-proof’ platform. This will hardly affect your user experience, but it will enable me to make changes, updates and new developments more easily and much more quickly. The site will end up with a slightly ‘cleaner’ more modern look. It should also make Fatbirder even more ‘friendly’ for a variety of devices such as smart phones and tablets. As always, we welcome feedback and suggestions.
