Birds in Maryland

I started seriously photographing wild birds during 2005 as a stimulating retirement pastime. The Birds in Maryland gallery has quickly grown to a current 171 different species. A few of the photos were actually taken in VA and DE but all of these birds are occasionally seen in Maryland. I know that I have a long way to go but it is a good start. Nonetheless, it is a constant and rewarding challenge coupled with the immeasurable enjoyment one can only find in the world of nature. One never knows what they might see over the next hill, on the next lake or pond or in the nearby field or forest. And then you hope that the subject fully cooperates in conjunction with your photographic skills. Good luck !!!
