S: Bird Photography | 2009 - 2015 | Gary Cascio

1: A bird is three things: Feathers, flight and song, And feathers are the least of these. MARJORIE ALLEN SEIFFERT, “The Shining Bird” | This page and front cover: Great Egret. (Ardea alba) Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. San Antonio, NM

2: Sharp-shinned Hawk (Accipiter striatus) Eldorado at Santa Fe. Santa Fe, NM

3: I have had a love affair with birds most of my life starting with a series of books given to me when I was four or five. They were called "The Birds of America" and each of the four books was a different color and was named after that color. I had "The Blue Book of Birds of America", "The Red Book...", "The Yellow Book..." and "The Green Book...". However, it wasn't until a few years ago that I began photographing birds. This book contains some of my favorite photos so far. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed photographing them.

Raw file processed through Photomatix Pro 5 software. A special thanks to my old pal, Dr. Bryan T. Brown, (aka "Dr. Gonzo") a southwestern ornithologist based in Salt Lake City, for putting up with my insistent questions on bird identification and my apparent inability to retain anything he has taught me. And, as always, I wouldn't be doing this without the support of my darling childbride, Reneé. All photos ©2015; Gary Cascio
