Greetings and thank you for checking out my work.

Many of my images are from the wilds of Upstate New York: Lake Ontario coastal wetlands, Montezuma NWR, Cayuga Basin and the Adirondacks. Others -- especially the warblers -- are from Magee Marsh and other sites in 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 recently created Birds & Bach, which 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 85 species, including 27 warbler species.

NEXT UP: I plan another audio-video slideshow, but instead of Bach it will be accompanied by each bird's song and/or call. It will consist of land birds only, but will include several additional species to those in Birds & Bach. Stay tuned!

OTHER PHOTO PROJECTS: 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 work appears on interpretive panels at Montezuma NWR, a brochure for Hawk Mountain, Cornell’s Lab of Ornithology web site, and instructional materials for Audubon North Carolina.

I'm grateful for any donations to

Have a joyful and safe 2021. Good birding!
