New to Forum and new to wildlife / birding photography

Hello All,

My name is Al and I currently reside in Brooklyn.

I have been shooting for a year and a half and slowly progressing more towards wildlife (while improving as a photographer).

I travel fairly often but looking to do more photography here in NYC / state (happy to join like-minded / interested people here for local meetups etc).

Attaching a few pictures from Ghana and New Zealand this year.

Hi Al and a warm welcome from me too.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here. I hope to hear about all the birds you see when out and about. And will hopefully see some of your pictures in the Gallery too.

Hi Al, welcome to the forum. You can post in our New York forum asking about other members from the city. You might give the Audubon Society in New York a look, I think they go to Central Park once a month and maybe Pelham Park.
