Wetland Birds
Birds are split into three main thumbnail pages: Wetland Birds, Warblers & Little Birds, and More Birds.
Click on any underlined bird to see larger photographs and find out more about it.
Some of my bird pages have little stories, others are just a few photographs I managed to snap before the bird flew away. Little by little, I find bits of time to slip away to the wetlands, or pull the car to the side of the road when I pass by a bird I haven't learned yet. As I acquire pictures and experiences , I'll share them with you, so check back to see what's new on Steph's birds.

...and empty spots are birds waiting for me to find them. I rearrange as I get new pictures, and they seldom match up to tidy rows of four. Origami Bird on Egg in Nest

...empty spots are birds waiting to pose for me one day  
I've had a lot of fun out in the wetlands photographing birds and talking to people. Thanks folks! When you go out birding, look for the big cameras. If they're all in a cluster aiming in the same general direction, it's generally worth pausing to see what they're waiting for. Don't be afraid to ask; most of the people out there are happy to share what they've discovered and point you toward current nests and neat happenings, which you can then share with the next passerby. Our wetlands are full of beautiful herons and egrets and ducks and more.
