Today is the 6th anniversary of the day I started photographing birds. On May 11th 2011, I photographed my first bird – a Brown Thrasher.
I now have 425 birds on my photographed life list. They are from 4 different countries:
- Canada (166)
- Costa Rica (237)
- Cuba (16)
- Mexico (6)
The Canadian ones are taken from 3 different provinces:
- British Columbia (16)
- Ontario (1)
- Saskatchewan (149)
My list increased by an amazing 255 birds this last year, largely due to my birding trip to Costa Rica in December. Every year I do a slide show of the birds I’ve photographed in the last year and post it on Youtube. I’m working on this year’s but it may take awhile – to put together and to watch! If you’re interested in past years’ efforts just search “Dianne’s Birds” on Youtube.
And the last bird added this year? A Loggerhead Shrike, that I photographed on a Golden Eagles trip to Redberry Lake yesterday.
I love birding!
