GLOBAL BIRD PHOTOS is dedicated to working together with like-minded North American professional bird photographers in educating and inspiring the general public in the beauty of birds. This site specializes in the photography of adult birds interacting with their young and capturing prey. With knowledge and today’s cameras with the high ISO coupled with long lenses and high speed strobes, this can be achieved without harassing the subjects.
