Hi Kibi78704, fàilte ann an Uicipeid na Gàidhlig. Chunnaic mi na rinn thu air na h-eòin. Is math sin.

Welcome on the Gaelic Uicipeid. Thanks a lot for your contributions to the birds.
Just a minor point: Please don’t add the English Wikipedia as an reference, as you can see hereDo not use articles from Wikipedia as sources…. Content from a Wikipedia article is not considered reliable unless it is backed up by citing reliable sources. Confirm that these sources support the content, then use them directly."

I saw that you used Dwellys as a reference as well, which is just perfect. And adding Template:Beathach does help a lot to improve those articles! Would be great to keep on doing it.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask. --Sionnach (an deasbaireachd) 06:46, 30 dhen t-Sultain 2014 (UTC)


Mòran taing airson na teamplaidean is tùsan a chur ris na h-aistean. Many thanks for adding the templates and the sources to the articles!
Now a few answers to your questions:
  • Dwellys and Am Faclair Beag are good sources, althought I’m not very fond of Malcolm MacLennan. Do you know this website: Dualas Nàdair na h-Alba and they have a dictionary as well, see for example: Calman
  • When you create some stubs, try to write more then just one sentence. That might be hard at the very beginning, but will help you a lot to improve your Gàidhlig! Just add a few additional info’s, where they live… Tha e/iad a' fuireach/ tha iad cumanta ann an…; what they look like… . Probably you could have a look at Corra-ghritheach or Deargan-fraoich, they look quite good as a start. And if you have questions with your Gàidhlig, just ask.
  • photos in WikiCommons: great!
  • "scientific" binomial versus the common name: I had a quick look around at some other wikis and some do it under the scientific name, others under the common name. For the moment I would suggest to keep them under the common name and see if it works, as I guess hardly anyone knows and would search them under the bionomial name. But we should always add a redirect with the scientific name to the article.
  • Calman: Some of the names from Dwellys might be older forms, so you could create a redirect for them to Calman as well. Do you know how to create redirects?
So much for now. Le deagh dhùrachdan--Sionnach (an deasbaireachd) 07:58, 16 dhen Dùbhlachd 2014 (UTC)

I added some species. Mostly from seo. Gunmhoine (an deasbaireachd) 03:00, 26 dhen Dùbhlachd 2014 (UTC)

For DAB pages you could use Teamplaid:Soilleireachadh. Mòran taing airson an sgioblachadh a rinn thu! Le deagh dhùrachdan --Sionnach (an deasbaireachd) 09:18, 27 dhen Dùbhlachd 2014 (UTC)

Hi! Happy New Year to you too. I am still finding more bird names bear air bheag, but it is getting harder. I emailed the gaelic academy in Canada to see if we can get any North-American bird names, but they did not have any info. Gunmhoine (an deasbaireachd) 01:51, 7 dhen Fhaoilleach 2015 (UTC)

You might enjoy the Gàidhlig proverbs in here. They might make a nice addition to some of the bird pages. Gunmhoine (an deasbaireachd) 04:30, 8 dhen Fhaoilleach 2015 (UTC)
Mòran taing airson obair air na h-eòin! You might find the list at SNH helpful/confusing. As with country names, if there's more than one version of a name I reference the source of the name so the reader can see who uses what, which seems to be most common etc. Thisissusanbell (an deasbaireachd) 10:52, 9 dhen Fhaoilleach 2015 (UTC)

Hi a-rithistDeasaich

Hi Kirsten, I see that you have been really busy! That’s great! I had a look at Connochaetes taurinus today and changed it a little bit. When you look at eachdraidh na duilleige (view history) you can see what I did. I hope you don’t mind if I’ll give you a few hints on improving writing in Uicipeid:

  • usually we start the headlines like this == Headline == (with two == on each side)
  • It is enough to link Beurla, Laideann etc just once.
  • you don’t need to create a redirect for every “Fo-seòrsa” in the article, you can leave them in red, otherwise the reader will think that there is already an article on this species. (so far I didn’t change that, but for the next ones you don’t have to do it.)

Adding the country where the animal lives is just perfect! Here are some more phrase you might find useful:

  • San fharsaingeachd tha iad eadar 170 is 240 cm (67–94 òirleach) a dh'fhaid. – Usually they are between 170–240 cm (67–94 inch) of lengths-> Usally their lengths is between 170 170–240 cm (67–94 inch)
  • ...agus tha iad eadar 115 is 145 cm (45–57 òirleach ) a dh'àirde. ..and they are between 115 is 145 cm (45–57 inch) of heights.
  • Faodaidh 290 kg (640 lb) de chuideam a bhith ann an (name of animal) fhireann air fàs. Tha an tè bhoireann nas lugha le 260 kg (570 lb) de chuideam. The average adult male of (name of animal) weighs 290 kg (640 lb). The female is smaller with a weight of 260 kg (570 lb).
  • or San farsaineachd tha iad mu 260 kg (570 lb) de chuideam – Usually their weight is around 260 kg (570 lb)
  • for the quotations: Retrieved 1. Jan. 2015 ->Leughte 10 Faoi. 2015 or : air a tharraing 10 Faoi. 2015

Maybe there are some more common and useful phrases you need, just let me know or ask user:Akerbeltz, he is the expert for the Gàidhlig! Then there will be some more flesh to the articles and you can improve your Gàidhlig at the same time! Honestly I would be totally lost with all those sub-species. You are doing a fine work.

I did some work on Gazella dorcas. Usually we don't add internal links (redirects to the page itself) to the article, so I took them out. But your Gàidhlig sentences were fine, I just added a few variations to them, so that you can play with them in the future:-) Dùrachdan --Sionnach (an deasbaireachd) 09:11, 12 dhen Fhaoilleach 2015 (UTC)
Please have another look at Gazella dorcas, I added a little more content. Here are the phrases:
  • Tha timcheall air ... fiadh-bheathach ann. There are (existing) around ... wild animals.
  • Tha iad a' fuireach ann an raointean-feòir grasslands, ann an steipean steppe, ann an wadis is fàsaichean nam beann Mountain deserts.
