            @Rachel There are some pretty astounding pictures of birds on Trover. Feel free to steal from my Fauna Selvatica list, but more importantly, consider reading the description text of that list. There, you will find the names of some outstanding Trover wildlife photographers. Mark Rentz is mentioned there, and he has a really phenomenal series on flying bald eagles, among other terrific stuff. I keep finding new (and old) discoveries and adding them to that list. You'd be amazed at what's out there.
