Hummingbirds & Woodpeckers
OF WESTERN NORTH AMERICA


Rufous Hummingbird, Saturna Island, BC.

The following page is devoted to some of my photographs of HUMMINGBIRDS and WOODPECKERS. Hummingbirds and woodpeckers are Non-Passerines (ie. not songbirds).

(Most of the birds on this page were photographed in Washington or British Columbia, and a few perhaps from my travels around the western United States. However, I have many other bird photos that are not on this page, from AN AMAZING BIRDING ROADTRIP through several birding hotspots across the country I embarked on in Spring 2008.)

Disclaimer: With bird photography, by first goal is to just document the bird sighting, and after I've done that my goal becomes getting a good photo of the bird. So my bird photos range from identification "I've seen that bird" photos to good "I'd hang that on my wall" photos.
