Bird Guides for Islands

Islands are the quintessence of wanderlust and traveling. And in many cases they have a birdlife, as you cannot find anywhere else. When you lave an island or at least its birdlife, an eBook from AVITOPIA may be among those few books you would like to take with you to some lonely island.

It is always fascinating to study the faces of birds. Often eyes and bill are very characteristic, but sometimes it is possible thereby to identify a bird species in way, that can hardly be put into words.

Selection of a Family


The subdivision of the system of the birds into families is an important tool, to study the world of birds stepwise. It also helps with the identification of bird species.


Search for Bird Species by Name


If you like to get to know a certain bird species, you may enter a part of the species name here. This function is also capable of translations: you may choose one of 5 secondary languages in the preview. And you can check your translation referring to the latin name and an image of the bird.


National Birds

In many countries and even provinces birds have been elected to symbolize the country or province - just like a flag.
In some cases, e.g. India, according to the constitution the states are not allowed to have flags. Then the national birds in a way even replace flags. We show you the national birds of the earth - also those of the Indian states.
