Atlas Photo Gallery - Species

Searching hints:

  • Use Ctrl-F to find the species you are looking for.
  • Search for just a single word from the species name. e.g., search for "black" (rather than 'black-crowned night heron").
  • Use the > arrow button in the find box to move to the next species that contains black. 
  • It may seem a little tedious to hit the > arrow button, but it is easier to search this way than it is to guess the exact words you need to search to get to the species you are looking for. Because of how the species names are formatted, it makes it very hard to search for "Yellow-bellied Flycatcher". Searching for just "flycatcher" (or even better "flyc") will get you there quicker.
