Birds of Iowa


Welcome to the Birds of Iowa website. This site contains photos and information about birds I have photographed in Iowa and other places. I have also added photos of amphibians, bats, flowers, fungi, mammals, salamanders, snails, snakes and turtles.

Florida Birds
This is a list of birds seen on our trip to Florida from 3-1/12-2008. Unfortunately I didn't get photographs of all the birds seen. I added to existing and created new pages for the birds seen. The wading birds were great. I was able to get good, close shots of most of them.
