Old GalleriesWelcome to my bird and nature photography web site! This site contains blog posts with my photos and the stories behind the images and my photo galleries.

Please excuse the clutter, I am in the process of migrating my old photo galleries because the program I was using is no longer working well.

For the new galleries look on the sidebar and for the old click the button. There are images in these galleries that do not appear on the old galleries; for instance my old galleries do not have the most recent images or they might not have bird species I had not included there like the Spotted Towhees.

I am currently working on moving my bird images to the new galleries.Old Galleries
