I have always enjoyed watching birds and in the last couple of years I have started to photograph them.  This blog is my space to display some of pictures I have taken.

The blog is divided into two sections, the first is the year & holiday tabs, they contain pictures taken in those years and locations.  The second is a collection of posts containing my life list pictures of birds that have been recorded in the Calgary birding area, in accordance with the 2017 version of the Clements Checklist of Birds of the World.  The posts are arranged using the order and family names.  Below each photograph is the date and location where the picture was taken.  Click on the location link to see a Google map of the area.
