This is week 3 of Featured Bird Blogger of the Week. If you would like to see the other Featured Bird Bloggers and my first post about why I am doing this..Click here.
This week I am happy to feature an awesome photographer. Say hello to John Briggs @Mainebirder on Twitter. I am sure many of you already follow Johns blog Birding in Maine. John’s photography always Wows me.. I know you will be Wowed too!
John and his wife Sharon have been involved in birding for over 25 years. His favorite birding areas are Plum Island, Ma., Biddeford Pool, Me., and Campobello Island, NB.
Favorite bird: chickadee
My passion for bird watching began 30 years ago when I was stationed on the USMC base at Camp Pendleton, CA. Ever since that day, I have recorded 466 species to my life list from every state, except Hawaii, and four countries. My list features birds that were seen as I do not count birds for life list inclusion that are only heard. Photography became a passion just a mere 8 years ago and I have been honing my skills ever since. I love being outdoors, blogging about my experiences and sharing with the world how I see nature and all that she has to offer.
You will agree, after looking at the photos below, that John has definitely done a great job of “honing” his photography skills.
I had a very difficult time weeding out photos ..so I have included more than I would normally.
