Birds of Iowa


Welcome to the Birds of Iowa website. This site contains photos and information about birds I have photographed in Iowa and other places. I have also added photos of amphibians, bats, flowers, fungi, mammals, salamanders, snails, snakes and turtles.



This page will take you to a list of bird families. That list will take you to photos of birds in the different families. I am trying to photograph all the birds on the Iowa checklist which contains 410 species. I am about 90% there.
The other links take you to a list of birds seen in Iowa, birds I have seen in other states and birds seen on trips.
