With three Great Lakes and a great diversity of land habitats types, the Upper Peninsula is home, for at least part of the year, to about 400 species of birds. Successfully photographing most avian species is much like hunting. It requires a lot of time, patience, skill, and knowledge of the quarry's habits. Due to their constant motion and obscuring habitat elements, the percentage of keepers is lower for bird photographs than for most other subjects.
All the photographs in this Gallery were taken in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (the UP).
