ABOUT ME

Phoo Chan is a bird photographer whose passion is capturing images of raptors in aerial actions including birds in flight aka BIF.  His work has been published in various publications including National Geographic magazine and the latest National Geographic Complete Birds of North America (2nd edition) book cover page.

As the largest birds of prey, eagles are harassed nonstop by birds of all species. Sometimes the hecklers are so persistent, it looks like the eagles “are being followed by mosquitoes, explains Kevin McGowan, a biologist who specializes in crow behavior at the Cornell lab of Ornithology.

Chan’s photos capture the entire sequence of events, suggesting the event actually happened.

Says Mallory Benedict, an assistant photo editor at National Geographic.

SKILLS

We learn new things everyday and the more we learn the more we get to grasp new piece of information that we never know was there before.  Learning is more fun when we start sharing the knowledge. So never stop learning and never stop sharing..
