2017 Birds


This is the first year I am keeping a running total.  I have not set a goal and don’t have a number in mind.  Since I travel on business quite a bit, I have been bringing my camera with me and trying to carve out a couple hours here and there when I am out of town.  Additionally, I was fortunate enough to go to Hawaii this year so I picked up a few birds there that are definitely out of the norm for me.

This also seems a good exercise to keep the running list as I can see which birds I have not photographed this year, it gives me some good targets to hunt for while I am out and about.
