of the Month"
is not meant to be a contest, but just a way to recognize and bring to
peoples attention, the interesting and excellent photos that are
posted on the "Utah Birds" website. It is meant to
highlight the different
photographers with different styles,
techniques, methods and equipment, photographing different species
of birds of different plumages doing interesting things or maybe being
caught at a particularly interest moment. These photos could be of
youngster or of
eagles sparring, or a
bird showing details of
its spread wings or
an adult birds interacting with a new chick
or a grouse
displaying or it might be
a well composed artful shot of a common bird.
We hope to provide a good representation of the great variety of bird
pictures we have in our collection.
Many of the over 15,000 bird photos on our website deserve special
recognition, but hopefully the "Photo of the Month" will spark interest
in the viewers so that they will peruse
collection and find pictures that will delight, enlighten and
