Hope your 2015 is off to a wondrous start. I was going to do “12 Birds of Christmas,” a bird a day, beginning with December 26th and ending on Epihany, January 6, but it was just too freaking cold here in Phoenix on 12/31 and 1/1 so that idea was abandoned. Maybe next year. But here are some photos taken the last few days of December 2014.
Orange-Crowned Warbler next to Verdin
Gilded Flicker, male
Great Blue Heron
CRAPPY PHOTO ALERT!
I don’t even like to show such poor quality photos but these birds were all “lifers” for me. I saw them better with my binoculars but just couldn’t get good shots.
Northern Shoveler, male
Northern Shovelers, male and female
Bald Eagle, Juvenile, 2nd Year
I hope to have many more birds in 2015, maybe a Big Year!
