As the long, dark days of winter give way to the seemingly endless daylight of the spring, birds arrive in their northern breeding grounds to begin their courtship rituals and nest building. From seabird colonies perched in towering cliffs to tundra leks to boreal forests, photographing these birds can be a 24/7 activity (if you’re not careful). The lands are vast but the birds are plentiful. Join March’s speaker, Neil Solomon, for stories and images of the many species observed during his journey to the north.
Like many, Neil’s interest in wildlife and photography started young and ripened over a lifetime: “At the age of ten I developed an interest in birding after watching Black-capped Chickadees feed on the seeds of giant sunflowers in a neighbor’s yard. Through the years I dabbled with photography, mostly landscapes. But in 2001, I purchased my first digital SLR, the Canon D30, and my interest in bird photography became more serious.”
Nineteen years, thousands of miles, and millions of birds later, Neil Solomon still travels the world in search of birds to photograph and images that tell a story.
