Birds 2017 features the birds that I photographed and had the synchronistic opportunity to encounter for the year. I am so grateful for my experiences with nature.
The photographs of the birds shown on this page and all photography throughout my site are photos that I have taken. My conclusions are based upon my use of the National Geographic field guide to the Birds of North America, social networking birding groups, google searches, and other bird watchers and photographers in the field. I also utilize a waterproof pocket field guide for Local Birds of San Diego County. This is how I have determined what birds I have photographed. It is also possible I may have mistaken something through this process. Guidance and clarifications are always appreciated.
My site is also my photography field work and note book. My photo habits and new bird watching ones continue to evolve. I have listed birds alphabetically and by category and type. Linked titles and the associated images connect to a related page for the bird referenced. You will find more images and galleries with dates and locations there.
