A Few Favorite Bird Photos

I enjoy trying to capture birds in flight or in their natural habitats. These are a few shots that I like allot. The first two of the Great Egret and the Black Phoebe were taken at Sweetwater Refuge in Tucson Arizona.
I see lots of birds when I'm in the field and I love getting a great shot. I shoot hundreds of pictures on a field trip thanks to the advent of digital photography which means I get some good ones each trip.
The Ferruginous Hawk Photo was taken at the Sonoran Desert Museums Raptor Free Flight Program in Tucson Arizona.
This photo of the Acorn Woodpecker was taken atop Kitt Peak which is a world renowned observatory located on the Tohono O'odham reservation in southern Arizona about 50 miles west of Tucson. The picture below is a Great Blue Heron taken at the Arivaca Cieniga in Arivaca Arizona about 10 miles north of the Mexican border where I spend as much time as I possibly can due to it's natural diversity. I recommend that you take a trip to Buenos Ares National Wildlife Refuge if you get the chance.
