Taking bird photos is hard work. In most cases you have to travel to the birding site. You have to lug your heavy equipment around, often on hikes that are several miles long. And the equipment – expensive. Bird photographers spend a lot of time trying to capture that perfect photo of a bird that often is not very cooperative. Hundreds of digital photos are usually taken just to get a couple of good photos.
Some of the photographers are hobbyists like me. Some also sell their photos. The people here have agreed to let us use some of their photos for educational use. They are all excited about YOU learning more about birding and bird photography. Each photo here is copyrighted. That means you cannot copy any photos you see here, nor can you print them out. It is against the laws of the United States of America, and you could be punished if you break the law. Please respect the rights of these photographers, and enjoy the activities they help me provide for your education and entertainment.
