Bird Photography

Bird photography is special to me because since my teenage years I am interested in birds and ornithology. This subject is combined with articles on birds, bird facts and of course images on the subjects.

You will find images of seabirds, the noisy but lovely gannets, waders and shorebirds, songbirds and waterfowl.

Essential Reading on Bird Facts – Species Accounts

Ornithology or birdwatching is a wide field of interest. Either one does birdwatching only or engages also in environmental issues and in scientific topics regarding birds in our nature and environment. Not only is there plenty to see and watch but also there is a huge amount of knowledge available that both helps birdwatching and personal participation in working groups. As a bird photographer it helps tremendously to shoot birds in their environment thereby documenting their doings and daily life. The section Bird Facts of my pages is there to help readers learn something and also invite readers to get in touch over certain aspects in ornithology.
