2017 Big Year Photos

August 3, 2017. While taking advantage of the strange cooler morning weather, I walked around the lake while Keith and Christine fished off the dock.

Fishing (not birding) in Saginaw, Texas on June 16, 2017.  Although not a single fish was caught by myself, I did take some photos of the numerous turtles.

 

Birding from California at the Joshua Tree National Park, Texas, Mississippi, Florida, Great Smoky Mountains, and Texas again.

I’m calling this a Cooper’s Hawk mainly because of the size that you can’t get a reference for here.
