These Colorful Bird Photos Are So Soothing to Look At

Photographer Leila Jeffreys has become famous over the last few years in the world of bird photography. The Sydney-based lenswoman has a love for wildlife but is particularly fond of our feathered friends. Leila loves capturing the unique personalities and the diverse beauty of naturally colorful birds through her lens and has developed a special bond with them. 

Leila’s initial love for birds began as a child when her father taught her how to rescue them. She then took bird-focused nursing classes that helped her learn more about wildlife. Today, the photographer often travels to some small island and lives with the birds there to understand them better.

Below, we have featured some of the most stunning up-close studio portraits of birds by Leila Jeffreys, including photographs of owls, pigeons, cockatoos, doves, and many other rare specimens you have never seen before. According to her, these elegant photos portray birds in a way that displays their incredible beauty and diversity. She hopes that these beautiful portraits will inspire a deeper concern for the well-being of birds.
