roseclaw's second attempt BY

Hello all!

 

I'm actually going to try this year.

 

Last year, I was able to post 8 despite having photos of over 400 species. I don't know the exact number, because I'm still trying to ID birds I saw last October. I'm from the US, so be prepared for a lot of New World blurds. Trips this year include Yucatan, Yellowstone, and possibly Taiwan.

 

(Currently at work, so pics will be posted later today. I just wanted to hold myself accountable.)

The thread is still going over here. Any help would be amazing!

@michael-ibk all North America? I'll see what I can do! I hadn't planned on Canada, but if you insist....

Great to have a birder that will show us birds from the USA, and Taiwan. Looking forward to see them, @roseclaw. If you will go to Canada, even better. I have heard that Vancouver Island is a good spot for Bald Eagles :o.

@xelas this is going to sound weird, but I live a mile from an eagle nest. They've been using it for about 20 years, and I see an adult about once a week. My avatar is actually me looking up at the nest. Last one I saw was Tuesday, but that doesn't count here, because it was last year. I'm sure I'll see another one soon enough. So no need to go to Vancouver to see them. Although, I wouldn't mind going to Vancouver to see other things. :D

It's been grey and icky for the past few days, so 1- 15 were taken 1/1 through a window in poor light. I've haven't been out for a proper day of birding yet.

Someday I will actually have a decent photo of a bird. It's been so dreary, and every photo so far has been taken through a window.

@TonyQ Blues Jays are pretty and smart and, as a result, insufferable! Especially at 5am. ;)

23. red-breasted merganser, Southern CT, USA 1/12 

 

I swear I can take decent photos... it's just they were very far away, and it was very windy.
