Tim Carstens is a bird club member–and Greenway walk leader–with a passion for birds and photography. Who better to share his bird photos for identification and enjoyment during times that limit our group birding?

(If you use, or pass on, any of these, please give Tim credit as the photographer.)

Thanks, Tim!–sf

If I have any of these mixed up, please let me know. The mistake is mine, not Tim’s.–Suzanne

  1. wonderful pictures, Tom, for id-ing and just loving the local birds. I left Franklin in 2015 and miss the bird club walks, and, my gosh, see youve all done such fantastic education and projects all over town. Thanks for being there for the birds..bees, butterflies, bugs …schoolhouse earth
