Birding since the late 1980s...mid 40s birder. Being out in nature and hearing the morning chorus, seeing how birds interact with their surroundings and go about their lives provides me a greater understanding of the natural environment we live in. With bird photography, every photo is different, which makes seeing the same and different species exciting.

Generally these 2 species don't get along very well. They managed to get on the same feeder for a moment. Delta, BC

The luckiest birding moment of 2021 without a doubt. Mother and father crane had just caught a vole, and fed the young crane in front of us. The Reifel Bird Sanctuary biologist had to keep all visitors back as this spectacle unfolded.

To our surprise a pair of Yellow-rumped Warblers has been visiting the yard. Here, already with insects in its beak and then waiting for the suet feeder to further stock up. Delta, BC
