Bird Photography

Bird photography is increasingly an important part of enjoying wild birds. Digital cameras, with a high degree of automation, can help almost anyone take excellent bird photographs.

Digiscoping, the use of a digital camera connected to a spotting scope, has also become very popular with many birders.

In this section of the site, we'll share information from Glenn Bartley, our staff photographer, and from other bird photographers.
