The Group


This is a place for people to post, share, and discuss pictures of birds, whether you have ID questions, you saw something rare, or just like how your bird photo turned out. The birds can be wild or captive (not in cages but free flying aviaries).

When you post your shot please state where in the world it was taken and what it is. If you would like help identifying your bird, please number the image and then ask for help in identification. That way if anyone wants to help they can use your name and the number of your image as reference.


If you would like a critic on your work or would like to know how you could improve your shot then please also ask. You could start your own discussion.

All shots should be posted on the Comment Wall giving other Group Members the chance to comment or ask questions about the photo. As Group Admin I will extract photos from the comment wall and place them in the discussion forum under Group Photos. That way if you want to view photos without comments and discussion you can. If you want to start another discussion please feel free but leave the Group Photos forum for Admin use only.

It would be great to build this group with birds from across the globe.



For fun from time to time you will be invited to show the best of a particular group of bird.

Looking forward to your photos and comments/discussions. Enjoy.

This Cape Francolin happened to land in our yard near the swimming pool. He caught a glimpse of himself in a mirror we have on the wall, and started calling and trying to get through the mirror to find the bird on the other side. He was very active so difficult to get a shot as he was continuously pacing up and down pecking at the mirror. I tried to chase him away for his own sake, but he just ran around the pool and straight back to the mirror, so I had to get my husband involved to force him to fly over the wall and back to freedom

While Alaska's landscape may be barren in the winter, there is still beauty to be had for those that seek it.  This Bald Eagle was sunning itself on a log on a rare sunny day during this harsh November trip.

Thank you so much, Carole, for the constructive comments pointing out why the bird is not in clear focus even when I thought I was being so careful! It is good to have someone tell you what is going wrong so you know what to try and correct. You are quite right that his foot and branch are in focus instead of his eyes.
