BIRDING

To date I have successfully photographed more than 250 species of birds normally found in Southern Africa. With a database of more than 2300 images, most of the birds can  be viewed in different poses and activities, also identification between male, female, chicks and immature birds. Not all available images are displayed here.

Image naming convention follows that from the Newman's Birds of Southern Africa (fully revised) and include the alternative and international names. 

Abbreviations forming part of the naming convention are:

m=male,  f=female,  i=immature,  br=breeding colours,  n-br=non-breeding colours, c=chick

All images are available to the media, publishing agencies, private individuals or corporate clients.  Feel free to contact me should you wish to make use of my images.  Pricing is dependant on usage and will be quoted on when requested.

Feel free to contact me for any specific requirements you may have.

NOTE: ALL IMAGES ARE COPYRIGHTED TO THE PHOTOGRAPHER.  DO NOT MISUSE OR OTHERWISE PUBLISH ANY IMAGES ILLEGALLY.
