Selected photographs of many species of birds found on the Island of Saint-Barthélemy in the French West Indies (Lesser Antilles) with emphasis on the necessity for bird conservation.
Rebecca Field has been an avid wildlife photographer since her first trip to Africa with her husband Ben in 1998. Repeated visits to that continent as well as to Europe, South America, and the Caribbean have produced much of her work. She has become increasingly focused on bird photography and bird conservation. She has studied with Jamie Thom from Johannesburg, South Africa (twice winner of the international Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition sponsored by BBC and Shell). She has also studied with Arthur Morris and Alan Murphy, two internationally renowned bird photographers and teachers. Rebecca has exhibited her work at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts in Minnesota and on the island of Saint-Barthelemy in the French West Indies, where she has also been involved in bird conservation activities. She is currently shooting with a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV body and a variety of lenses, including the Canon 800mm lens.
