This site reflects my current passion for photographing birds.

I have been photographing for over 50 years; and am now retired from a satisfying profession beginning in Biochemistry, and ending in Biomedical Photography.

Below are links to my most recent nature photography. Hopefully you will find as much enjoyment in viewing it as I do in creating it.

On January 15, 2018, I decided to photograph the rare Northern Parula located in Liberty Park, originally discovered by Bryant Olsen.

On this day, a sizable number of veteran birders were on the scene, and lots of images were taken!

A few of my examples of the Northern Parula are shown below:

 

 

This bird was always on the move, most often partially hidden in the highest portion of tall conifers!

 

 

I was surprised that I succeeded at all, with the quick, semi-hidden little bird!

 

 

 

 

 

This image demonstrates the whitish under-tail coloration

 

 

For the most part, the bird was directly over us, showing its underbelly!

 

 

 

Other not-so-rare birds that I enjoy photographing in Winter at Liberty Park are the plentiful Red-breasted Nuthatches...

 

 

 

This one (photographed in deep shade) was in the process of consuming a seed.

 

 

 

Others in the sun are simply fun to watch!
