Welcome to My World of Bird Photography! This site represents the 5208 bird species (as of Jan 2022) I have been photographing worldwide in the past two decades. My photos have been published in hundreds of books and magazines, and since I’m keen on bird conservation, photos are donated to not-for-profit organisations, education and research. This will continue with this relaunched site that originally went live in 2008.

If you are looking for images of a certain species, please use the search function in the menu bar. Inside a gallery, explore the sort function if you like. You can sort by taxonomy, species name, by date etc… Back and forth. If you find a photo that you would like to publish or use in any other way, please contact me first.

Naming and taxonomy intend to follow IOC World Bird List.

Take care/
Lars Petersson
