Most of my images are from the wilds of Upstate New York: Lake Ontario coastal wetlands, Montezuma NWR, Cayuga Basin and the Adirondacks. The others are from Northwest Ohio.

I've been chasing birds with my camera for 11 years, going from one love affair to another with each new species I come to know. The past few years my focus has been on songbirds, especially the tiny ones. I enjoy the challenge of trying to capture their beauty as they scoot through flora at lightning speed playing peek-a-boo. I'm also slowly learning to bird by ear which is adding a whole new dimension to my birding experience.

Birds & Bach is a slideshow of several of my bird photos synced in time to two pieces by Bach. It goes through various bird families of both land and water for a total of 92 species, including 28 warbler species.

Other work:

• One of my photos was included in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology 2022 calendar.

My article and several of my Piping Plover adult & chick images were published in the June 2016 issue of New York State Conservationist magazine.

My photos also appear on several interpretive panels at Montezuma NWR, a brochure for Hawk Mountain and instructional materials for Audubon North Carolina.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Good birding!
