Happy Valentine’s Day: A Birdshare Gallery

New self-paced course: Learn How to Identify Bird Songs, Click to Learn More

Birds inspire a lot of emotions—awe at their numbers, wonder at their brilliant colors, envy of their flight, delight in their song, concern for their future, and love, for the way many of them form long-lasting pair bonds and care for their young. Science is still undecided on the existence of complex emotions in birds—nevertheless, for Valentine’s Day, we offer a slideshow of birds showing a little of what we perceive as tenderness. Thanks to the many Birdshare photographers whose work is represented here.
