23 Photos of Beautiful Birds from Around the World

I’m not much for bird photography. I like it, I’m just not good at it most of the time. But in celebration of National Bird Day today, I thought I would share some of my favorite bird images I’ve taken at home and abroad!

These images are from a variety of locations around the world. A few were taken  a few blocks from my home in New York City, while others were shot in various countries in Africa.
