2012 was filled with very memorable, fun, and exciting moments, and my trip to Long Point this August will be my most cherished memory!
At the end of last year, I wrote a post on “My 10 Favorite Birds of 2011“. I wanted this year’s year-end post to be different from that, so here are my 10 best and favorite photos of 2012.
One of the most exciting birds I saw at my feeders this year was a Northern Shrike in March,
Holding a Burrowing Owl at the Tofield Snow Goose Chase in April,
One of the Gray Catbirds I counted during the local May species bird count,
