Starting off the year right

I recently got into bird photography in May of 2019. I’ve always loved nature, and had done a summer internship involving breeding bird surveys but I didn’t fall in love with all things avian until this year. I’ve learned most of what I know on my own and through photography by taking pictures of all new birds and then going back and trying to ID each and every one of them. I still do this today.

I’m excited to present my best bird photos of 2019 and to begin the birding phase of this blog. Hope you enjoy!
