To photograph songbirds, you need to understand their behavior. In this video series, professional bird photographers Doug Gardner and Gary Carter hunker down in Gary’s North Carolina bird sanctuary and show you how they go about capturing images of cardinals, woodpeckers, pine warblers, woodpeckers, bluebirds, and more in this beautiful environment for songbirds. Gary will explain how he constructed the habitat: a pond bordered by dead logs and plants, bird feeders on trees and in the cover of bushes, and a premium feed mix including black gold sunflowers and berries. Finally, Gary built a bird blind in an old shed for the ideal photo opportunities. Join Doug and Gary for all you need to know on how to photograph songbirds.
