My favorite bird photos of 2017


The main thing that I’ll remember from 2017 is that I got my first book published. That is most certainly a milestone and I can assure you that my photographic journey is just in the beginning. This year I was focusing on common species, such as White wagtails or Common linnets. Furthermore, there was one bird that took most of my time. Three weeks to be exact. Corn crakes are not easy to approach nor photograph, but somehow I ended up chasing those secretive birds and succeeded. So, have a look at nine photos that got my attention this year.

Great tit (Parus major)

Marsh tit (Poecile palustris)

Fieldfare (Turdus pilaris)

Ural owl (Strix uralensis)

Siberian jay (Perisoreus infaustus)

Corn crake (Crex crex)

Long-tailed tit (Aegithalos caudatus)

Marsh tit (Poecile palustris)

European crested tit (Lophophanes cristatus)
