Lake Martin Rookery

Just a short twenty minute drive from Lafayette, Louisiana, the Lake Martin Sanctuary in early spring through mid-summer is a bird watcher’s paradise. A forest combined of oak, bald cypress and tupelo, the lake offers a unique habitat that attracts nearly sixty percent of all U.S. bird species.

The largest heron in North America—the Great Blue—lives, breeds and nests year-round in South Florida, so I have the opportunity to photograph them in every season.

My Favorite Florida Birds, The Ibises

© Don Chamberlain
One of the most commonly encountered birds that I see while photographing birds in Florida are White and Glossy Ibises. They can be seen wading and feeding individually, in small groups with other ibises, and/or in mixed groups with other ibises, egrets, herons, spoonbills, etc.

A Gift from the Skies

A Gift from the Skies by Spencer Moore

I have done a lot of traveling in an attempt to photograph eagles from Alaska to Washington to Canada to national parks. However, I never expected to have an opportunity to make images of a nesting pair of bald eagles fifteen minutes from my home in Waco, Texas. Not only was I blessed with such a wonderful occurrence, but also during the spring of 2009 I had the pleasure of sharing this incredible experience with my good friend, Brian Boyd. During those months we logged over 100 miles of hiking which turned out to be advantageous to my health as well as an experience yielding many new images for my files.
