Photographer Takes Bird Portraits And The Results Are Sublime (25 Pics)

Mindaugas Balčiauskas and Rokas Laurinavičius

Photographer Tim Flach has three goldfish and two Burmesecats. The latter, Hunt and Blue, eagerly keep their owner company while heworks, even though they would probably gladly devour some of his subjects.


Flach is known for his striking portraits, where animals aretreated with the same care as any human model. The photographer has capturedboth wild and domesticated animals, but whether he places them against a plainbackground or meets them in their natural habitat, Flach always manages tohighlight their unique appearance.


This time, we're focusing on his bird photos, but if youwant to learn more about his magnificent work, check out Flach's books Endangered and More Than Human.

More info:


#1 Inca Tern


This for me, is the Salvador Dali of the bird world. When it comes to the length of the Peruvian Inca terns moustache, longer is healthier. A longer moustache indicates a stronger immune system and therefore a more attractive proposition for courtship.

#2 Blue Tit


Blue Tits are a common sight at bird tables in the U.K. Researchers found that the British put double the food in bird feeders than our European neighbours, which they believe is contributing to some bird species developing longer beaks.

#3 Jacobin Pigeon


The Jacobins are one of the oldest domestic pigeon breeds in the world, originating from India. Their arrival in Europe during the 16th Century is what sparked their evolution into the fashionable exhibition birds we see today.

#4 Silver Laced Polish Chicken




#5 Northern Red Cardinal



Northern red cardinals are adept songsters, with individuals being able to produce more than a dozen song variations. This particular cardinal had a fair bit of attitude, as though he could have flown straight out of Angry Birds.

#6 Major Mitchell


The beautiful crest on the heads of cockatoos is one of the things that sets them apart from other parrots. However, they share the longevity of many members of the parrot family, and have a very similar life span to humans.

#7 The Himalayan Monal


The Himalayan Monal is the national bird of Nepal.

#8 The Philippine Eagle


I spend days travelling through the Mountains on the Philippine islands looking for this eagle, and in the end I photographed it at a rescue sanctuary. The Philippine Eagle has one of the largest wing spans of any eagle, at 2 metres, and is only found on the Philippine islands, where it is the national bird. IUCN: Critically Endangered

#9 Black Jacobin Pigeon


The Jacobin received its European name because its hood of feathers resembles the garments worn by the Jacobin order of monks. For others it resembles a lady in feathery clothing.

#10 The Gouldian Finch


The Gouldian finch from Australia for me is one of the most colourful of all finches. I was fortunate to have a model on the day that permitted me to come so close, sometimes times too close, as it decided to land on my head a number of times rather than to stay on his perch.

#11 Longtail Broadbill



This long-tailed broadbill can be found from the Himalayas to South East Asia. He reminds me of a fighter pilot - but a lot of you seem to think he looks like Elvis - with his helmet-like black cap and sleek blue patch on their crown.

#12 Victoria Crowned Pigeon



The Victoria Crowned Pigeon is considered the largest of the living pigeon species, and can be found on mainland New Guinea. The only larger member of the pigeon family would have been the Dodo.

#13 Egyptian Vulture




#14 The Toco Toucan



The Toco Toucans bill is the largest relative to body size of any bird and it can be used to regulate heat distribution similar to elephants ears. While sleeping, heat loss can be reduced by placing their bill under their wing.

#15 Vultrurine Guineafowl Hen



Vultrurine Guineafowl hens can lay up to 40 eggs per season - this might be one of the reasons that this bird is not a threatened species! They are found in the bushy half-deserts of Eastern Africa and spend most of their time running rather than flying.

#16 Shoebill




#17 The Grey Crowned Crane



The Grey Crowned Crane, from Southern and Eastern Africa, has a reputation for being rather short tempered and can potentially take ones eye out with a single peck. When he started pecking at my camera and seemed intent to start on me, I didnt hang around!

#18 The King Vulture



The Mayans once believed that the King vulture was the messenger between gods and people. Contrary to the common association between vultures and deserts, the King vulture inhabits the dense forests found in South America up to Mexico!

#19 This Silver-Laced Rooster



This Silver-Laced rooster has come to symbolise, in Polish literature and art, a country gentleman from medieval Poland. I took this photograph at the Federation Championship Poultry Show last week.

#20 Red Splash Jacobin Pigeon



The Jacobins probably the most regal pigeon, having been kept by the likes of Charles Darwin and Queen Victoria. It gets its name because of the hood of feathers enveloping its head.

#21 Andean Cock Of The Rock



During breeding male Cock-of-the-rock take part in confrontation displays which is rather like a dance battle with other males which gets more and more frenzied as the female approaches.

#22 The Nicobar Pigeon



The Nicobar Pigeon is the closest living relative to the Dodo. They are a threatened species hunted for food and their gizzard stones are extracted for jewellery. They are a nomadic species moving from places like the Nicobar islands in India to other coastal regions in Southeast Asia.

#23 Bearded Tit



Bearded tits are the only British songbird to stay and breed in reed beds all year round. There are less than 600 breeding pairs of bearded tits found in Britain, most likely because they are limited by habitat, building their nests low down in the reeds. A group of bearded tits is called a banditry.

#24 Crested Miniature Duck



This domestic duck is a Crested Miniature. Comb-like structures around the edge of their beak allow them to strain through the mud for food such as insects.

#25 Hooded Vulture
