When I began photographing birds in 2001, I thought it would just 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 over four dozen digital slide presentations to a wide variety of audiences, and have hung numerous 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 spurred most of 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.
Don Kroodsma has a site (2016) with his BIRD SONGS, using my images for most of the birds.
