Wings and Feathers

Whether I’m bird watching, taking photos, and/or flying an airplane, it’s all about wings and feathers when it comes to my hobbies.  I’ve posted my best photos from the last few years so I can share them with others.

 I’ve been bird watching for as long as I can remember.  My family had a bird feeder in the backyard and a pair of binoculars was standard equipment for any outing.  My Dad was a photographer and began teaching me to take pictures of birds when I was in my teens.  Becoming a pilot came much later—I’ve had my license since 2012, completing training in 3 Cessna aircraft: 152, 172S, and 182.  I have also obtained my Canadian over-the-top certificate. 

I have recently moved to northern California to take advantage of all the amazing bird life that comes here during the winter months.

A note on using the site:  Click on a menu item at the top of the page to see the photos.  If there is a down button on an item, mouse across the item and you will see an extended menu.  Then you can click on any one of those items.  Once the photos in a menu are displayed,  you can click on any photo to get a full-size, side-scrolling display of all the photos in that collection.

I hope you enjoy the site.    I can be reached at
