About the Photographer

Welcome to my bird photography site!  I love to travel the world, photographing birds as I go.  I take pride in capturing the personalities of birds, particularly while they are being active.  I admit that I take guilty pleasure in assigning human traits to my bird friends!  I apologize to my scientific friends for ignoring the biological aspects of birds in favor of the artistic aspect of the photo.  Occasionally, I even take creative license in composing a story of my choosing around the photos I capture.  For storytelling blogs and articles about the places I’ve visited and the wildlife I’ve seen, you can visit my website JeanMyers.photography.  For stories about our all-native gardens and wildlife in the beautiful foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains near Gilroy, CA you can visit my web site CasaDosRios.net.
