This site is dedicated to photos of wildlife (mostly birds) in Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Idaho. These photos were all taken with Canon equipment, mostly with a 75-300 IS lens and a doubler, or a 12-60x spotting scope and camera adapter.  This site contains photos of over 190 species of birds found here, plus over 20 other types of animals. Most of these photos were taken casually, while birding, hiking or just visiting different areas around the Pacific Northwest.  Hope you enjoy them!
