My fascination for birds and wildlife goes all the way back to my childhood in the 1950's. As a boy I would go on regular fishing trips and walks with my parents who were always quick to point out anything of interest. I developed a love for painting birds which led to me building an aviary as soon as I grew up and owned my own property. This interest has grown over the years and now with the advent of good digital cameras and equipment my interests continue to expand in theses areas.
