Photography and birding are my hobbies in retirement. Most birders keep lists of birds they have seen, life lists, regional or country lists, daily or monthly lists etc. My focus is on photography, for me it is a form of hunting and the photographs are my trophies and I collect them , they form my "Lists". I decided it would be fun to try to collect photographs of a thousand different species. Here they are separated into different regions. They do not all have to be really good photos though some are. They do have to be reasonable and the bird species clearly recognisable from the shot. It is a work in progress and I look forward to the fun I will have building towards that magic 1000. Occasionally a species appears twice but they have only been counted once in making up the total.
