Birds - Fuglar


Taking pictures of a bird is a bit of a challenge. The bird tend to be moving around a lot. Since I take a lot of picture I started early practicing to be better in photography by taking pictures of birds. Here I have categorized pictures of birds according to there icelandic names, but let the english name follow. Since I am not a bird specialist there might be some errors, please let me know if you see any.
Number of icelandic birds: 51
