Wildfowl Photography

This website contains photographs, videos, and information on many species of wildfowl (Ducks, Geese, and Swans) from around the world. There are also Cranes, Flamingos, Screamers, as well as Coot and Moorhen.

Hopefully this will be a useful resource for identifying and learning about different types of wildfowl.

Wildfowl
Wildfowl are listed in alphabetical order A-B, C-F, G-L, M-R, S-Z and each page contains photographs, call, video and information (appearance, size, food, habitat, breeding season, eggs, conservation status, classification and interesting notes).

Identification
To help in quickly 'identifying a Duck' there is a page which contains thumbnail photographs of most of the ducks of the world. The thumbnail can be clicked to enlarge the photograph or there is a link to more details, photographs, and video of the duck. Ducks are also listed under 'Dabbling Ducks', 'Diving Ducks', 'Perching Ducks', 'Sea Ducks', 'Shelducks', 'Stiff-tail Ducks', and 'Whistling Ducks'. There are also pages containing 'Female Ducks', 'Ducks in Eclipse plumage', and 'British Ducks'. To help with the terminology there is also a page of 'Duck external anatomy' which tells you the name of different parts of a duck.

There is a page to help you quickly 'identify a Goose' which contains many geese of the world. Geese are also listed under 'Black Geese (Branta)', 'Grey Geese (Anser)', and 'White Geese (Chen)'.

Identification pages can be found for identifying 'Swans', 'Cranes', 'Flamingos', 'Screamers', and 'Moorhen/Coot'.
