Story and photography by Ethan Meleg

In the last issue, I wrote about how to find out which bird species can be expected in the areas where you’re photographing. Now, I’m focusing on tips for identifying bird species by observing their unique differences and characteristics. The great thing is that since many of the identification features are relative to other birds, as you learn more species, it becomes easier to identify the others. And as a bird photographer, improving your bird ID skills can help increase your chance of capturing more great photos!
