Over the last couple of years I’ve spending a lot of time along the shore during the winter months. There are a lot of birds I get to see at the shore during the winter that I don’t see other times of the year. The Horned Lark is one such species.
They stay mostly on the ground and have a look of their own. I especially like their colorful black and yellow facial pattern.
I can’t say that I’m excited about the approaching winter but I do look forward to winter birding.
Married, I am not a casual weekend birder,-still learning-still making mistakes. I am not a writer or photographer but enjoy blogging about my outdoor adventures. I am currently using a Canon PowerShot SX50 HS camera, Meopta Meostar 8x42 binoculars, and a vortex spotting scope. The Name Brownstone Birding Blog comes from the fact that I in which Portland has been known for its brownstone quarries for many years. Much of the brownstone used for older buildings in New York came from the town of Portland.
