Sparrow Day Around Ottawa International Airport

Another Sparrow day in the lush green area around Ottawa International Airport. The weather was cooler this morning and the birds not so active. But we had great views of Firled, Grasshopper, Clay-colored and Vesper Sparrow. In addition Brown Thrasher, Chestnut-sided and Palm Warbler, Lincoln Sparrow and just as we were leaving the parking lot at Mer Bleue, we had a Sandhill Crane fly over.

Professional Photographer accepting new assignments! After working as an Executive/Personal Assistant for 15 years, mainly in the oil and gas business in Norway, I needed a change in my life. Since photography had been a passion since I was a child, I wanted to do something creative and meaningful in this field. This inspired me to visit Greece for 3 wonderful years. After returning to Norway, I decided it was time to become a professional photographer/artist. In 2010, I graduated from “Bilder Nordic School of Photography” in Oslo. At the same time, I was working full time with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) International Arctic Program. In addition to nature & wildlife photography, I also do lifestyle, weddings/anniversaries, portrait and creative photography and I teach photography and photo editing.
