03 Mar Safe ways to view and photograph baby birds in the great outdoors
I’ve been a bird fan ever since falling in love with Woodstock in the Charlie Brown and Peanuts Gang comic strips. To qualify that affection, I do not consider myself a “birder” since I don’t keep a life list or travel in search of finding a specific, elusive bird. But I love photographing them, studying their personalities and, most of all, spotting hatchlings and fledglings, which make me smile.
In this photo story, I share some of my favorite baby bird sightings from the past two years. I know a little about bird life cycles and hope you find some of my tips and experiences helpful. We love baby birds at WRT and, if you find some, we encourage you to view them at a safe distance and avoid interrupting their care and feedings.
