2020 Updates

This website has languished in recent years. Websites like this are now sort of an anachronism. When I first set up this website over 20 years ago everyone was using small monitors and dial up modems to access the internet. I have done very little bird photography in the past few years, but I still have many bird photos dating back to 2015 that I never got around to processing and posting here. Now that I have some time to sit at home at the computer I will try to get caught up finally. While I haven't been posting new photos on the internet, I have been making hundreds of prints. After going back and reprocessing some older photos from the past 20 years I find it very difficult to tell what camera took what photo, so I'm not very motivated to keep photographing the same species over and over again.

Most of my free time these days, weather permitting, is now spent bike riding. I always bring my binoculars and a camera with some short lenses, but my 800mm lens and tripod stays home. I'm working on some birding guides to some of my favorite bike trails. Hopefully I'll get these finished and posted here in coming months too and add some more. Last year I got a 29' mountain unicycle which is a lot of fun on gravel bike trails. Bike trail photos and the birding guides that will eventually accompany them can be found on the Birding and Photography Page. I still have my 800mm lens and might get back into photographing birds again in the future, but at this time standing in one spot is less enjoyable to me than being out riding.

Bird photo pages that have been updated in 2020 include the pages below. These aren't recent photos, just ones I never got around to previously. I'll post one from each of those pages and link on the pages showing the rest as they are added. Lots more to come.
