Dorie's World Bird List


Brighty and Dora Lee

Brighty was a fearless parakeet. He would call the cats from his cage--"Come here Smokey. Don't you bite me." He, and Momma's birdfeeder, sparked my interest in birds when I was but a child. This interest was fueled further by teaching for three years on Midway Island, a marine bird sanctuary, and living at the beach on the Alabama Gulf Coast.

I hope you enjoy my attempts to capture the beauty of the birds I have encountered all over the world. This labor of love is a work in progress. I have photographed 895 bird species of the 10,474 on the IOC list. Just 9,579 or so more to go!
