A Photographic Big Year for the Birds- Throughout 2013 I will photograph as many bird species as possible in a "Photographic Big Year". I'm aiming for 500. The purpose of this big year and blog is to raise awareness and donations for the American Bird Conservancy's work with endangered birds in Hawaii. Please consider supporting their effort.

I've been working a lot lately, which has really cut down on my birding time. While packing my car this morning, I heard the unmistakable call of a Northern Flicker coming from somewhere in the yard. Much to my amusement, he was feasting on the suet. While I know there are overwintering birds in the state (and even in the general area), it was nice to see in the yard. Picture bird #55!

I won't be working much this week, so keep an eye out for updates. I also have all weekend to bird. Now to just find a way to get to British Columbia...
