Why birds? Look....

There are three ways to navigate the photos. One way is to select the bird you wish to see from this list. Use your back button to return to the list. The second way is to view favorites. The third way, if you have high-speed internet, is to view a nice video

Please Email me with comments about photography, birds, or the website. I would like to hear from you. I am working updating this site all the time.
