My favorite bird photos of 2019


2019 was the year of first encounters. I had the chance to take my first decent photos of Northern hawk-owls, Boreal owl, Great grey owl, Common firecrest, Siberian tit, Willow ptarmigan, Golden eagle, Red-flanked bluetail etc. Like in the recent years I wrote a lot, took tons of photos and even filmed. Mainly birds and different forest sceneries. Most of my work is still associated with birds and to be honest, I don’t mind. I had tons of memorable moments with different species both in Estonia and Finland. So, to celebrate birds, here are some of my favorite bird photos from 2019. Enjoy!
