Bird-a-Day Challenge 2013

I had so much fun last year so I’ll be participating in the Bird-a-Day Challenge again in 2013. This blog post from Audubon Magazine last year explains the challenge: Bird-A-Day Challenge Begins New Years Day 2012. I participated in 2012, lasting until May 23th; in 2011 I only made it to January 23rd. I sometimes post updates on my Bird-a-Day progress which you can follow on the blog. Note that all of the linked photos show the actual bird(s) used on the day of the challenge.
