Welcome to my website. This page was designed to display my passion for bird photography. So far, I have taken a total of photos at different locations. A total of different bird species have been photographed.

My photos can be searched in a number of different ways.

  Bird List - A taxonomic listing of all of the birds that I've photographed.

  Bird Search - Search for a particular bird by common name, genus, species, family and/or order.

  Location List - See a list of all of the places where these photos were taken.

  Top 20 Photos - The 20 photographs that I think are the best.

  Blog - <Coming soon> Some highlights of my photography. Unfortunately, I don't have much time to make regular entries so this isn't a very active blog.

Bird Notes - I consider myself an amateur birder. There are a number of identifications of my photos that I'm not sure of such as Long-billed Dowitcher vs. Short-billed. I try to identify the questionable IDs in the photo captions but there could easily be others where I'm mistaken in my ID. If you think I've gotten one wrong please feel free to email me.

Photo Notes - The photos in the individual bird and location pages are cropped to 800 pixels wide. If you click on one of these you get the full version. However, due to cropping, these vary significantly. I tend to crop tightly for photos that are going on the web. If you want to see if I have an uncropped version email me and I'll see what I can do.
