You know how it is...if it's in your
backyard, you tend to ignore it. We
have precious few photos of North
American birds, mostly because we
rarely paid attention to birds in the past.
That said, when we return to the US for
a visit, we're much more attentive these

Our identification source:  National
Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of
North America.. Local websites are
great for identifications as well. Once
you have the photo, it's much easier to
ID the bird.
While we were temporarily living in Las
Vegas and land-cruising the USA in
2010, we acquired so many new bird
photos , we had to set up a separate
page for
Birds of the Western USA.

We've continued to update this main
page with more bird photos during our
2012 American Odyssey.
