The purpose of this website is to bring attention to the state of the bird populations through outstanding photography and great articles. Also, to show the general public the beauty and joy birds add to our existence as a human race. Without birds our existence would seem meaningless.
Conservation and protection of the birds must be top priority for all bird photographers. Ethical behaviour around bird nests and their young will be beyond reproach.
