0 Graduate Student Looking for Pictures of Migrant Birds


Hey everyone! I am a grad student for the Project Dragonfly program apart of Miami University of Ohio, and I'm working on a research project that highlights the importance of migratory stopover sites for birds.

A big part of the project is creating a Twitter account that highlights the importance of why we should protect these areas, including photos of migratory birds and popular stopover sites. My goal is to get community involvement on the project, so I was thinking of having all of the photos I use come from birders.

So, if anybody would be willing to send me some select shots of some migratory birds, I would really appreciate it! Obviously I would give you photo credit, and if any of you have links to photography pages I could link those as well so that viewers could see other photos you have to offer. Specific birds I'm currently looking for photos of:
  • Wood Thrush
  • Northern Parula
  • Sandhill Crane
  • Ruddy Turnstone
  • Red Knot
  • Black-and-white Warbler
  • Hooded Warbler
  • Black-throated Blue Warbler
  • Blackburnian Warbler
  • Ruby-throated Hummingbird
  • American Bittern

This is a working list, so any other awesome shots of eye-catching migratory birds (passerines, shorebirds, anything you think would be attractive to the average non-birder) would be amazing! I'm also trying to highlight long-distance migrants for a variety of species so shots involving those (including group shots) are very welcome.

Thanks for the help in advance! You can either post the pictures here in the comments or email them to me at:
