Dec 16 2015 A Birding Year
2015 has been a year of great adventures. Among many other endeavours I have been to the UK twice (Feb and this Dec) and I also fulfilled a life long dream to drive across Canada (May-July)
I always promised myself I wouldn't get caught up in a numbers game but there's something about ticking birds that makes it fun and educational. Below are a few random images in chronological order from the past twelve months and and a list of my 2015 Canada birds (291species)
I hope you enjoy them!
