Birding in June 2014

POSTED BY THOMAS

June is for June Challenge. It's simple, you try to find as many different birds as possible in your county. The trick is, you got to see them too, not just hear. It makes little difficult with owls and other nocturnal birds. I wasn't sure first if I participate this year's challenge, but soon I was in full June Challenge mode.

Birding in May 2014

POSTED BY THOMAS

I was at Theodore Roosevelt area and got two new birds for my year list, Blackpoll Warbler and Gray-cheeked Thrush. At that time I couldn't carry camera around because I broke my arm few weeks ago, but I got some good views of thrush so that I didn't mis ID it with Veery or Swainson's. Gray-cheeked Thrush was on a trail and I had planty of time to observe this guy. He had plain gray face and almost no eye ring and had more heavily spotted breast than other thrushes.

Birding in April 2014

POSTED BY THOMAS

April was my record month seeing new year birds. I saw 25 new yearbirs, almost every day something new showed up. What makes birding interesting is that you never know what you may find, and the best time is spring when birds are on move.

Birding in March 2014

POSTED BY THOMAS

Spring is here, birds are coming, what an exciting time. This spring is little late but birds have their biological clock built in, so they come no matter what, maybe just little later. March is great and April will be even better.

Birding in February 2014

POSTED BY THOMAS

February is usually one of the slowest months for birding, only winter birds are here and weather is usually cold and windy so I didn't expect to get lot of birds. Almost every morning I was out for a couple of hours as is my morning activity. I am a web designer and developer, so it's good to start your day with some time outside and then jump into web coding.

Birding in January 2014

POSTED BY THOMAS

January is exciting month, it means that you can start filling out the year list again; all the birds you see are new. When I'm stepping out of door in January first, I always think what would be the first bird I see?

Last couple of years I been starting my new year first birding day on Fort George Island with owling. But this year I and Kevin decided to get started in Beltz-Tiger Point Preserve. Thatís where we left off at Christmas Count, December 28íth. Last bird we got then was an Eastern Woodcock, and thatís why we are here again.
