The Wonderland Project

Birds of Wonderland

Birds are like breathing for me. The breath of their company pulls on knotted heartstrings, dissolving, releasing, opening the spirit home. I have found company with over 90 species of birds that walk, fly, eat, sleep, and nest on these 4 acres. I have photographed over 85 of them, many in a blur of flight—an adventure of color and form that their company, my breath, has joyfully experienced.

Species group, family name, and the list of birds I've seen;

hover over to see some of my wonderland bird photographs.
