Clay-colored Sparrow on Canal St, 12/8/2015

My Favorite Bird Photos of 2012

At the end of each year I like to go back and look at the bird photographs I have taken and choose the ones I like the best for a “favorite bird photo” post. I usually choose one photo for each month but this year I have thrown in some extras, probably, for one reason […]
