Birds

I love photographing birds, but sometimes I am not sure if birds like me photographing them. I have also met quite a few birds who seem to love me taking photographs of them. I am attempting to assemble all my better bird photographs on my website. This will take a while to build and will also be a continual project as I get more and hopefully better photographs. The photographs are arranged in taxonomical order. I will try to keep the order and scientific names current with the The Clements Checklist of Birds of the World.
