Bird Field Work

Aside from being an avid birder (view a gallery of bird images from around the United States) I have been involved in a variety of bird field including:

  • night-lighting for northern gannets, surf scoters and red-throated loons,
  • Open-water mist netting for scoters.
  • Mist-netting passerines
  • mist-netting saw-whet owls

A great part of being a photographer is capturing the process -the science- of bird field work. My work has extended into the open open and onto land. Many The collective effort of our team has lead to insightful information regarding the offshore movements of gannets, loons, and scoters and movement of eagles over wind farms, loons in the Gulf of Mexico, and at the banding station at River Point, Maine.
