Generally i take my photographs in the wild. The excitement of finding a rare bird or experiencing a bird in their native habitat is unparalled. However, it can be fun to get close to captive birds which you wouldn't ordinarily see. It's also good practice should i ever have such an opportunity in the wild!
Birds photographed include: Golden Eagle, Bald Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, Red-tailed Hawk, Ferruginous Hawk, Harris Hawk, Great Horned Owl, Snowy Owl, Dark Phase Red-tailed Hawk, Dark Phase Great Horned Owl, Western Barn Owl, Baby Snowy Owl, and Turkey Vulture.
