Here's to a bright new year!
Advertisements [?]
And of course to brighten things up how about some color from our avian friends. These are photos from November and December only. Some have great light. Others have horrible light but the birds themselves help make the photo.

Northern Cardinal



Vermilion Flycatcher







Common Grackle (Yes, the same ones that congregate in parking lots in suburban malls and supermarkets, but this one is a hillbilly cousin. ;) )



Eastern Bluebird



American Goldfinch









Green Jay





And finally some ducks and geese:

Canvasback


American Wigeon


Northern Pintail at take-off


Hooded Merganser
]



Canada Goose



And as a bonus, a quick shot of a white tailed hawk, a rather uncommon species in North America.



Get outside and see what is around! It might surprise you. :) Have a great new year!
