On Wikipedia, is it possible to view all of the files or articles that were recently added to a specific category? In this case, I want to view all files that were recently added to [[Category:Birds]], and show the files in descending order of recency.

"Recency" is indeed an English word, according to my spell-checker. It's not a neologism. :) – Anderson Green Mar 29 '13 at 1:18

There is no built-in way to do that. That's why I created a service called Category Watchlist that periodically monitors categories from Wikimedia wikis you ask it to and reports changes to them.

For more information, see the tool's description page and the site of tool itself.
