Bird Photos

Photography of birds is the focus of my work. Listed below are bird photos by species. I will continue to add photos to this list, so keep checking back.  I have thousands of bird photos in my files, so feel free to contact me by email, I'd be happy to search my files for your specific needs.

Please Read!!!

All of my photos are copyrighted. Anyone wishing to use my photos for any purpose must contact me.
I have a policy of no free use of photos. This hobby is expensive. I put in a lot of time and effort to obtain quality photos. I simply cannot allow free use of photos. One exception: I will allow use of my photos for Powerpoint presentations used for education and conservation purposes.  Donations are welcome. Photo credit is required.
