Gaze Upon My Christmas Bird Count Photos Ye Mi…

for they are too cute ugh

Vesper Sparrow

American Kestrel

Cedar Waxwing (who is she??)

One of THREE Bald Eagles coming in to home base (the nest is VERY far away!)

Tufted Titmouse is TOO MUCH I can’t TAKE IT (may or may not be hybridized with Black-crested Titmice at this spot)

Yellow-rumped Warbler

A retina-scorching Pine Warbler

White-throated Sparrow

Chipping Sparrow

A Dark-eyed Junco?! I didn’t realize Texas got those!!

Eastern Floofbird *cough* I mean, Bluebird

There were at least five life birds my group saw that I didn’t (and some they saw SEVERAL times), so I took out my frustrations re: the sub-optimal bird photography conditions with something that WASN’T flying out of view constantly 

Hermit Thrush

Red-bellied Woodpecker

and speaking of Red-bellied Woodpeckers… My photo of a memorable one last year made it onto this year’s T-shirt!
