Like many others, I've had targets of opportunity flutter by & often had no clue what it was I "shot". And, most sites I've found are useless! Why? There's NO image index page, so you have to click on every name to find something you're trying to ID.
Would it be SO hard to provide a page of thumbnails for us? Well, Some members have found a couple below that do have thumbs.

If anyone has a similar THUMB site, please help us all out & post a link here. In the long run, it should save you time trying to ID the unknowns we've encountered! ;)

And, thanks everyone!

These last two aren't thumb sites, but they are useful -

Discover Life - All Living Things (primarily North America):
http://www.discoverlif​e.org/nh/ (external link)
ID Nature Guides can be particularly helpful.

AviBase - the World database of birds:

This site gives lists of birds individual continents, countries, and states.

I like www.whatbird.com (external link) for birds in NA. It has a fairly handy search tool using different criteria. It has about 900 species IIRC. It can be a little slow, though.
