Bird Photography Library
Stephen Fischer Photography

Below you may find my bird photography "life list" catalog to-date as captured in the wild across various regions of the US over the last few years. It is primarily focused on the west, with the library organized by bird families as closely categorized by the Sibley field guide. It represents an ongoing effort, and is regularly updated as new, unique, and improved images are captured.  For each species I have tried to pick higher quality images where possible, but for some birds I have had to settle for more minimal quality based on what I have been able to photograph so far.

To view a more artistically oriented comprehensive set of bird related images, please see the bird gallery here.
