Another avian adventure of “sight and sound” highlighting the past ten or more years of my warbler photography here in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. It’s presented in full High Definition, (choose 1080P) with files of a much higher resolution downscaled to fit the popular format.
The majority of the images were captured very near my home in our Hanover Watershed WMA , Maryland/Pennsylvania, just five minutes away, or the Michaux State Forest, just west of Gettysburg Pennsylvania, around a 30-minute drive for me. Some of the images were captured along the Kowomu Trail, just across the Mason Dixon line in Carroll County MD, along with a few others along Maryland’s eastern shore and coastal Delaware.
I have included the Bird Songs of each species along with the images captured by various recordists, including some of my own to add a bit more “life” to this presentation, The next time you take a stroll in your favorite forest, this may help you identify the species of warbler you are hearing, sight unseen. I hope you enjoy my efforts here.

This was a “labor of love” and took me several weeks consisting of an hour here, or an hour there to put it all together along, with some “fun music”, and I finally finished it up last night. It was designed and built from scratch using Adobe Premiere Pro in 4K resolution and took over 5 hours to render overnight.
I have been wanting to put some of my favorite work in a “sight and sound” format for some time now and have finally begun to get around to it. All of the images were captured over the last 15 years using Canon and Leica cameras paired with Canon, Zeiss, Sigma, and Irix lenses. The majority of the wildflowers and butterfly images were captured here near my home in Pennsylvania, especially within the Michaux State Forest, with a few from Texas, Maryland, Delaware Virginia, West Virginia, and New Jersey. Not all of the plants are considered “Native,” but all were captured in the wild and within natural habitats. All of the butterflies were photographed in two major fields (private) of sewn and native wildflowers, in my local area. I hope you enjoy my efforts here.

A video/slideshow of some of my favorite “owly” images from over the past ten years and an adventure of sight and sound. I’ve been wanting to do this for several years and finally decided to take the time and effort to put it together. It’s only about 8 minutes long so I hope folks will watch.
I have highlighted four species here with one just being a short glimpse (the Eastern Screech Owl) which I captured quite by accident. I was down near my home in Texas along the Gulf Coast during the early spring hoping to photograph the warbler migration for which I use a screech owl trill to draw the curiosity the birds and see who may be present. It was a total surprise to have this little fellow make an appearance around the “noon hour”. Perhaps I drew his curiosity from his slumber…
Most of the Barred owls were photographed near my home here in Pennsylvania along with most of the Short-eared Owls. One of the Barred’s was photographed in a Louisiana Bald Cypress Swamp near the Lacassine Refuge. Bald Cypress Swamps are a favorite of the Barred Owl throughout the US. A few of the “Shorty” were captured on the eastern shore of Maryland while the entirety of the Great Horned images was photographed within the Loblolly Pine shelterbelts of that same area.
Putting this together was a lot of fun taking several weeks of working on it here and there. And Thanks to Epidemic Sound for their music library. I hope you all enjoy!

A “just for fun” video from the Black Rock Flats and Codorus State Park, along Lake Marburg in York County Pennsylvania and captured last weekend while visiting with friends Saturday during the early morning hours.
Originally captured in 4K resolution with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Sigma 150-600 Sports lens paired with the Canon 1.4X teleconverter as well since the little guys were a bit out there in distance. However, I “down sampled” the 4K video to Full HD (1080P) resolution just to reduce the file size and make it easier for all to enjoy this short little 4-and-a-half-minute film.
Captured at 23.97 FPS in Canon Log (CLOG) with a 180-degree shutter angle (1/50sec), I also used a 3 Stop Formatt Hitech Neutral Density filter. I’m still trying to adjust to this Manfrotto Nitro-tech N8 fluid head, so I had to edit out a few jitters here and there, (and left a few) but it’s growing on me. Overall, it was lots of fun just to shoot from a lawn chair and enjoy some camaraderie with a couple of friends.
