The Bird in the Hand

These pages contain photographs of birds in the hand, with specialised discussion of identification, moult, techniques for ageing, and so on. They have all been written by David Norman except where otherwise credited: comments are welcome. There is an index to the species and subjects.


Thanks to Bob Mulvihill, Powdermill Nature Reserve, for his inspirational pioneering work in posting on the Web his educational photos of birds in the hand.
