Fantastic Birds and Where to Find Them

For me, photographing birds started as a pandemic hobby. When there was nothing else to do, all the cafés and restaurants were closed, at least I could go out to the park and watch the birds. Around the same time, I also started bird watching from home with my cat, Magenta. I still remember how surprised I was to find out how many birds you can actually find out there. Yes, even if you live in a crowded area like I do.

Living in an urban area in Germany, I see plenty of common waterbirds in the parks (ducks, swans, geese, sometimes herons) and many passerines (tits, goldfinches, robins). Once I spotted a kestrel near the Rhine river and was delighted, but this never happened again since.

I’d love to hear from you: Do you also enjoy watching birds (or other animals)? If so, what are the common birds you see around you?

Bird Close-Ups Photo Gallery

Of all bird photography, I like bird close-ups the most (read more about my photography gear here). Perhaps that’s because I am not skilled enough to catch them mid-flight? Hmm. Maybe. But anyway, you have to admit they look pretty cute up close. Sometimes extremely judgmental, but always cute. Here are a few examples.

See you on my next post!
