Recommended Posts

I'm not sure where this year will go, but I'm sure it will be interesting. Do not expect quality at any time! Do expect birds from the northeastern United States.

 

New Year's Day birds! All in Northwestern CT, USA.

 

1. Dark-eyed (slate-colored) junco

Birding must be a welcome diversion from the insanity that is going on all around your country at the moment. Keep them coming!

Yes, @Dave Williams Things here are Not Good, so birding is a great distraction. Hopefully I have more birds this weekend!

16. Coopers Hawk 2/9, northwestern CT, USA

 

It's been snowing here constantly, so I haven't been able to do much birding except from my window. Here's the very cold hawk sitting in the snow.

I blinked and now it is somehow October? How did this happen? I don't know if I'll be able to catch up, but I hope to at least see how everyone else is doing!
