So, I know I wrote the post-mortem for this space, but maybe there's a little heart beat left. After writing that post-mortem, I decided to systematically organize every natural history image I've photographed at my Smugmug website - tomarbour.smugmug.com. Doing that has made me aware of species that I have yet to photograph. And what did I decide I would do about that? Well, photograph them! And instead of just adding them to the gallery on Smugmug, why not share them here as well?
Today I went to Alum Creek to look for the eared grebe, and struck out. A trip to the Oxbow Area at Hoover Nature Preserve, however, yielded three species I have not photographed, the golden-crowned Kinglet;
The Bonaparte's Gull;
And the Bufflehead.
Follow along, and let's see what else we can find in 2016.
