Welcome to Wildfowl Omnibus
Wildfowl Omnibus is the biggest section of Harteman Wildfowl. It is where you can find a comprehensive collection of photography and documentary regarding all varieties of wild Anseriformes (ducks, geese, swans and screamers). But also Gruiformes (cranes and allies), Charadriiformes (Shorebirds and Seabirds) and Ciconiiformes (Flamingos, Egrets, Ibisses etc.) can be found here.

Among the species of these birds some are very rare and endangered. However, most of those threatened species (Anseriformes and Gruiformes) are bred in collections of zoos and private breeders, some in small numbers, others even more common then their wild relatives. Captive breeding programms have already saved quite some species from the brink of extincion!

Harteman Wildfowl dedicates this website to those who conserve wildlife through captive breeding.
