Photo essay: Birds in nature, cities and zoos

by Parviz Forghani
Birds are always fascinating to me, though photographing them is literally a pain in the neck, but I enjoy that pain! Most of the photos are taken in open spaces except a few which are in sanctuaries and zoos. I have tried my nest of knowledge to insert the name of the birds on the photos, however some of them were beyond my knowledge.
