Show us your bird pics!

This is the place to show off your best western/central NY bird pictures from the past thirty days. We welcome shots from photographers of all levels, using any kind of equipment. Whether it’s a nice cell phone pic of a House Sparrow on your bird feeder or a beautifully lit portrait of the rarest rarity taken with top notch gear, we want to see it!

Not an RBA member? JOIN NOW so your photos can be added to our online gallery! We’ll do the work for you, and your friends and family can visit and view your pics any time.

The gallery is updated every few days, so we can use more than one photo of the same species, taken at different locations or a few days later than those already posted. Seeing more birds under varying conditions makes us all better birders, so don’t be shy about sharing.

Last 30 Days Gallery Guidelines:

  1. You must be an RBA member to contribute photos.
  2. The pictures must have been taken in western/central New York in the last 30 days. Pictures will appear in the Last 30 Days Gallery until they are 30 days old, when they will be moved to a monthly archive gallery.
  3. Your submission may be cropped and/or edited to bring out its best. Photo file sizes are adjusted for optimum web viewing. We cannot use photos with a watermark/copyright symbol on them, but we always include copyright info in the caption.
  4. If we receive multiple pics of the same species, we try to post at least one  for each person submitting. We want all RBA members to have the opportunity to show off their photos! However, depending on the number received and other limiting factors, we may not be able to use all the photos submitted every month.
  5. Attach your photos to an email and send to The following information MUST be included in the email for each photo: (a) bird identification, (b) where picture was taken (hotspot name, park name, or town/suburb), (c) RBA member name, (d) date bird photo was taken. Most photos will be added to the gallery within a week of receipt.  
  6. By submitting your image to RBA, you are granting RBA the rights to use your image on our website, social media, and other electronic properties.
