About WorldTwitch

WorldTwitch provides the latest news about rare birds around the world, trip reports by birding experts such as Jon Hornbuckle, the most useful links to websites on birding around the world, discussion boards for the exchange of birding information, and selections of books recommended for world birders.

While the main focus of this site is birding, urgent conservation notices are included from time to time when it appears that something might be done to preserve an important bird area for a bit longer. Many of the best sites around the world that I was fortunate to visit while relatively intact have been destroyed or ecologically isolated in recent years with little notice to the outside world. With the Internet, it's now possible to let people know when the remaining wild areas are being wrecked, although only rarely can anything be done to preserve them as human populations explode almost everywhere.

Please submit your reports, links and any suggestions. Please note that due to the work involved in proofreading, correcting and formatting trip reports for WorldTwitch, I will not post trip reports that are submitted to other websites.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope that this website helps with your birding trips.

John Wall
