Learn from master bird photographer, me, Bruce Finocchio, see how I created works of art and images that sing with beauty. Come and photograph with me in my backyard studio where I have a myriad of bird feeders, a birdbath/fountain, and numerous carefully selected perches to attract many different species of birds. The fall migration is occurring now, and soon the wintering sparrows and other bird species will arrive.
