Welcome  to  the  Bird  Study  Group


The Bird Study Group is a northwestern Louisiana organization of birders based in Shreveport. The Bird Study Group offers field trips, bird discussions, a bird sighting database, and other programs for people with an interest in birds. Regular meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month except July and August.

The next meeting of the Shreveport Bird Study Group is scheduled for Tuesday, May 14 in the LSUS Museum Annex., @ 6:30 p.m. Come at 6 p.m. to chat with other birders before the meeting.

Bird Study Group member Roger Coley will provide a program on:

“Choosing a Camera for Bird Photography with Some Helpful Hints for Better Photos”

Roger’s program is aimed at folks pursuing photography in a more meaningful way. He will walk us through the current camera options to make sense of DSLR vs mirrorless, etc. He will talk about the size of the sensor in a camera and its relative importance. He will then focus on equipment choice, exposure, ISO settings, and using some composition rules to improve bird photography. Roger’s program is based on a course he taught at the Noel Community Arts program.

Roger was a newspaper photographer and editor in Shreveport and in Arkansas for 20+ years. He followed that with another 20+year stint as a technical writer, where he continued to use photography extensively. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from a professional with years of experience.

The program is free and open to the public.

"Let no one tell you again that science is only for specialists; it is not. It is no different from history or good talk or reading a novel; some people do it better and some worse; some make a life's work of it; but it is within the reach of everybody."
