When I began photographing birds in 2001, I thought it would simply be an enjoyable way to expand my birdwatching activity, which I had begun at the urging of my wife Marylee Bomboy (who entered my life in 1994). It has led me beyond my wildest dreams. I have given some four dozen digital slide presentations to bird and photo clubs in Massachusetts and beyond, and have hung a good dozen gallery exhibitions—most notably two juried shows at the Burnett Gallery in Amherst. Mass Audubon have used my images extensively in support of their activities.

Marylee and I both love to travel, and it has been a major spur to my photography. She plans our trips, and in the field often serves as my spotter. I hope this site will enable you to travel with us, in a sense. I’ve provided captions for each image (as in my gallery shows), giving at least the location, and additional information as appropriate. I hope this may give some of you ideas for trips of your own. Feel free to contact me with any questions, or if you’d like a print or two. The next page–Galleries–has links to the image pages, listed alphabetically.

An additional treat:  Don Kroodsma has a new site with his BIRD SONGS, using my images for most of the birds.
