My Favourite 20 Bird Photos 2013

Another of my loves, with my camera, is capturing images of our beautiful birds. I am lucky enough to live very close to Woodlands Historic Park which is home to many and varied species of birds.

I’ve selected my favourite 20 bird images taken in 2013, I hope you enjoy them.

My rules for selection were;
– no more than one photo for any one species
– no captive birds, only wild birds

You can click on any image to view it larger in Flickr.

In no particular order.

    It appears you spend many delightful hours in Woodlands Park, but it also appears that you are quick to catch the opportunistic shot in your neighbourhood. The brown falcon is majestic.

    Hey Andrew,

    I saw your work and Flickr and followed it to your blog and I just wanted to say your photos are awesome! Appreciate you sharing your work.

    I own a website called, it’s consumer web app that tests websites and we’re looking for some beautiful art to populate our backdrops and I was curious if you are open to having your work featured on our site? It would be free advertising for you and we’d give you full credit with a link to your site, we’re just looking to showcase some cool art.

    Let me know if you’d be interested.
