Part 2: Passerines and Other Birds

All of the photographs on this page were taken with a Fujifilm digital camera. A Questar telescope was also used for many of the photos. See my Digiscoping with a Questar page to learn how I use a Questar telescope with a digital camera for nature photography. More photos of birds and insects can be seen on my Instagram feed, handle robertdhughes63.
