Birds of New Mexico

NEXT>

These pages include photographs of birds I've been taking since June 2004, in the backyard in the Sandia foothills, up in the Sandias, along the Rio Grande, other places in New Mexico, and a few from trips elsewhere in the country. There are lots more bird pictures on my travel page from trips to Central and South America, Asia, and one of these days, Africa. Earlier pictures were taken with an Olympus D-490 Zoom, then a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 (loved that camera!), a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18, and Canon Powershot SD450. Pictures since April 2009 were taken with a Nikon D90 usually with a 70-300 mm lens, and a few with an 18-105 mm lens, then in August, 2013, I kicked it up a notch with a Nikon D7100.

In March, 2011, I also started a blog since there's a lot more time these days to get out birding and taking some pictures. The address is http://joeschelling.wordpress.com if you're interested in taking a look.

These are mostly in reverse chronological order, with more recent pictures on this page,followed by older ones on later pages. Alternatively, I've organized all the pictures by the Latin family names on a series of pages starting at the following link:
