"All About Birds" Featured Photographer!

If you have been into birds for any amount of time, you certainly have stumbled upon (or spent significant portions of your free time perusing) Cornell's Lab of Ornithology "All About Birds" website.  This site is a phenomenal resource on every bird found in the U.S. with photos, range maps, descriptors, vocalizations and other anecdotal information.  There are dozens of informative articles and so many birding tips.  Additionally, if you sign up to be a member (as little as $40 / year) you receive their Living Bird magazine and their BirdScope newsletter in addition to having access to detailed, in-depth biological breakdowns of each species.

Another cool element to this website is their monthly "featured photographer" series and it's with great pleasure and pride that I am the "featured photographer" of February 2011!  It is certainly cool to have a series of my photos in a gallery on such a distinguished website which is a destination for anyone with an interest in birds or bird photography.  Check out this link to view the photos and the little blurb I supplied:

Interested in seeing more of my work?  You'll see a dozen of my photos in print when you purchase the fantastic book by John Turner entitled Exploring the Other Island: A seasonal guide to nature on Long Island which I reviewed here: Book Review

Or, you can pre-order the excellent new Raptor guide by Jerry Liguori entitled Hawks at a Distance: Identification of Migrant Raptors which features one of my Gyrfalcon photos.
