According to the Egyptian Ornithology Rarities Committee, 466 species of birds have been recorded in Egypt. Two thirds of these birds are migratory species and one third breed in the area.

The purpose of this guide is to support citizen science, providing you with directions on how to identify bird species using simple identification tools through the use of stunning photography. It will also be used to add further data submissions, mainly on the eBird platform.


eBird is among the world’s largest biodiversity-related science projects, with more than 100 million bird sightings recorded each year by citizen scientists around the world. eBird is managed by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and is a collaborative enterprise with hundreds of partner organizations, thousands of regional experts, and hundreds of thousands of users.
