The Year in Birds

28 Dec

I love the end of the year when it gives me a chance to look back through the year.  This year, I really started paying attention to the birds I have around here, and thanks to TexWisGirl, I think I have them all labeled.  I will admit, any small brownish bird that I don’t know, I label a sparrow.  Feel free to correct me.

I know I’ve missed a couple of birds that I managed to photograph, but this is a good sampling.
