Dale Murchison has been retired for five years and by coincidence, in the last five years he has been able to produce most of his bird photos. He notes “I enjoy the thrill of capturing the beauty of Prince Edward Island birds. My hobby and goal is to photograph as many Island birds as possible, and though I am not an expert birder, I am having a great time learning.”
Dale Murchison will be feature speaker for the Nature PEI meeting on Tuesday, January 5th. It starts at 7:30 PM at Beaconsfield’s Carriage House, corner of West and Kent, Charlottetown. All are welcome.
Dale plans to share a robust 95 photos of the 140 or so species he has captured so far, including birds of prey, woodpeckers, common winter and feeder birds, spring and summer favourites, shorebirds, and ducks. Perhaps his most invigorating experience was photographing Peregrine Falcons hunting for shorebirds at East Point. Photos by Dale Murchison
