Birds are secretive and mysterious, making them one of the hardest animals to photograph. As a result, the British Trust for Ornithology is taking the time to appreciate photographers from all over the world who have mastered the art of capturing the beauty of birds.
 
These are exotic and special birds that over the years have become a focus of interest for scientists, researchers, and bird watchers alike, thanks to the variety and unique appearance of these winged creatures.
