2015 The Year of the Bird

In January of 2015 I decided to take two of my life-long interests and merge them with each other . Enter the "Lifetime Birdlist" , my goal was to photograph as many species as possible during this, my unofficial "Big Year"and to get a jump start on the new list. After spending hundreds of hours in the woods, parks, urban backstreets and shorelines of Florida, Colorado and Kentucky I ended up with well over 10 thousand photos which have taken the next two years to sort through, discard and organize. By the end of the year 2015 the official count was at 118 different birds. Since then the list has been growing slow but steady as you can see my progress posted below, don't forget to click on the images to see the high resolution versions of the photos. My personal goal for this lifetime list is 300 birds which is more ambitious then I originally thought considering there are over 900 in North America alone.


The photos are numbered so you don't have to count for accuracy. NOTE: whenever you see a little red camera icon in the bottom right corner of the thumbnail image, it means that I did not get a good close up and their still on my photo list.
