Hallo together,

is there any recommend internet page with Japanese bird names.
Ideally with both Japanese and English, but I can read also Hiragana.

Thank you very much.


Best regards

Have you tried avibase? They have Japanese names amongst others, although I don't know how complete the names list is.

Funnily, all Japanese bird names are written in katakana.
The list (Japanese + scientific) is on wikipedia.

Thank you very much for help.

Hopefully wikipedia names are right.
In internet are many failures with Japanese language.
If I send Japanese friends setence from google translator they often laugh.

In the wikipedia overview are Katagana, often Kanji and somethimes Furigana ( Kanji + Katagana ).

Much less informations are in
https://learnjapanesedaily.com/japanese-vocabulary-on-birds.html

For location I thing this page is very good
http://www7b.biglobe.ne.jp/~japan-birding/spot.html

Good for learning Hiragana und Katagana is Japanpod

Try joining Kantori if you are on Facebook (an English speaking Group) and asking there, someone on there may be able to help with a Japanese site / page with English names.
