Rationale - in progress.
I like taking pictures of birds. In fact, I like taking pictures of anything.
But I especially like taking pictures of birds.
First, there is the challenge of "capturing them". This is especially challenging with a relative small lens such as I have.
Second is the fact that they do interesting things.
Third is the fact that range from quite drab to absurdly colorful.
In some strange way, this desultory collection of photos constitutes a life list of sorts.
For me, recording a bird, using sound or photography, is much more satisfying than merely seeing it and marking it down on a list. I often find birds I know well as much of a thrill as birds I have never seen before, especially if I can capture a new pose.
I would be most grateful for any help with the common or scientific names of any of the unidentified pictures.
