Show off 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 can often use more than one photo of the same species, especially if they are taken at different times and locations or show different angles from those already posted. Seeing more birds under varying conditions makes us all better birders, so don’t be shy about sharing.

Photos remain in the Last 30 Days Gallery until they are 30 days old, when they are moved to a monthly archive gallery.
