Between spending time outside photographing winter birds here in New England, I’ve been in my studio working through my archives gathering old favorites and discovering unpublished gems for a potential book project on my bird photography from around the world. This week, I was “virtually” in Australia, reliving a series of expeditions to the remote Cape York Peninsula where some years ago, our team from National Geographic and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology worked to document some of the rarest and most endangered species found in this wilderness. One of the standouts was the Golden-shouldered Parrot, an endangered species with only about 300 breeding pairs remaining. I was able to photograph them in their unique habitat dotted with giant termite mounds. I hope you enjoy the images and behind-the-scenes video below. It is always my hope that by sharing the stories of endangered species, we can increase awareness and have a positive impact on their future.
