About Mia McPherson

I am a nature lover, wildlife watcher and a bird photographer. I first become serious about bird photography when I moved to Florida in 2004 and it wasn’t long before I was hooked (addicted is more like it). My move to the Salt Lake area of Utah was a great opportunity to continue observing their behavior and to pursue my passion for photographing birds.


  1. Absolutely amazing! I wanted to thank you for the most excellent post on being a bird photographer Mia. I hope many people read it. It is the best article I have ever read on being a bird photographer. I loved every line! Gorgeous Bald Eagle too ;-)

    • Larry, I had so much fun writing “So ya think ya want to be a Bird Photographer”, it was a joy. And many, many thanks for your kind words on that post on BirdingIsFun and here. I love how the Eagle image shows the harsh conditions these birds survive in, better yet, thrive in.

  2. The photo of the frost-covered Bald Eagle, is stunning. Mia, you are fantastic. :-)

    • Thank you for your very kind words Bob. The frost covered eagle is a favorite of mine, sat with that bird for two hours in freezing cold & fog while it … well, de-frosted. Then it lifted off.
