Welcome to Birds Up Close.
Sometimes I’m close enough to take a portrait photo.
And sometimes a branch (or other object) blocks part of the bird. So I save a close up.
All these photos show views of birds that few people see. Enjoy!
Note: Some of these photos appeared in blog posts. Links to those blogs appear under their photos.
