Ducks, loons, grebes, sandpipers, plovers, herons, gulls, etc– I've lumped together a diverse assemblage living in or near the water in this gallery. Some species make great subjects for photographers since many are large, charismatic, and somewhat tolerant of human activity.

Raptors are beautiful and exciting to watch. They seem to embody wildness more than most other birds, so spotting one is always thrilling. Click below to see various photos of hawks, owls, eagles, falcons, and vultures.

Game Birds

More than just 'dumb chickens'!  I've spent almost two decades getting to know some of these birds and they hold a dear place in my heart. The sage-grouse photos come mainly from my research seasons in Wyoming.
