About/Terms of use


www.birdpoints.com hereinafter called Birdpoints is trying to bring forth as much as possible the behaviour and facts of birds for the sole purpose of increasing the awareness of our wonderful companions. Also at least ID-able images will be put up and as and when available better quality shots shall be provided. Although this site is for the slightly advanced birder, patient and steady observation of the birds in a matter of few months achieves an initial advanced status for anyone. Then the points put here start becoming relevant. To us an advanced birder is an ornithologist.

You may also submit your images or published notes/ careful observations with citations for inclusion in this site. Also, the errors or copyright violations may please be brought to the notice of the webmaster at the email id below.

Care has been taken to accurately represent the scientific/common names but with so many viewpoints on the subject and with much of the research pending, reasonable people are bound to disagree on the names adopted. If there are mistakes, they are all ours.

Also please note that the text at times is quite old and although the behaviour brought forth is quite relevant, the names of the places and the birds may not be in current use.

End September 07 onwards Ads have been incorporated in the site for revenue generation as well as enhancing the visitor experience. Birdpoints however remains a non profit initiative, any unlikely accrual of profit shall be donated to registered charities.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

Special thanks:

To Krys Kazmierczak for his comments on the site layout, bird classifications and indeed for his enthusiastic support.

To Bill Harvey for his help in many identification issues.

To the members from India and the world of the delhibird group for creating an excellent environment for birders, gaining in strength by the day, which at times with spirited discussions helps in vetting the site records.

And to our families for putting up with unearthly hours and far off places. Without such a support this project would not have been possible.
