Hi all,

My wife and I have had a passing interest in birds. However since moving to the Pocono's of Pennsylvania we have a lot of land and began watching the local birds. We then bought binoculars (Nikon 8x42) and a book on Birds in Pennsylvania. Then started setting up bird feeders and bird houses on the 2 acres that are clear around our house which actually sits on 15 acres. There are trees and bushes around the perimeter of our 2 acres cleared land. The birds love this and we have seen many local and some migrating birds.

I am also a amature photographer and soon turned my lens towards the birds. I now find myself on our deck each morning, having coffee and using my camera shooting pictures of the birds eating at our feeders. It's so relaxing and exiting at the same time.

I'm looking for some tips on bird photography. Hopefully some of you can help.

Hi Techneck and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

I've moved your post so that it starts its own thread and subscribed you to it so that you can find it easily (you will receive an email with a link to bring you straight here). There's instructions how to unsubscribe if you want to.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here. I look forward to hearing your news and will hopefully see some of your pictures in the Gallery too.
