About George C. Wood

A birder since age ten, but not necessarily an avid "lister", I am closing in on 700 (*800!) species seen in North America.....hoping to capture each sighting with my camera.

    You know what I think of the Rosey faced, but I am so emotionally attached to the owl and that Jay!! I need quality prints!

  3. Tom Mason says:

    Six lifers! You are a true “hunter-gatherer ” .

  4. George Gephart says:

    You go, George! However, you have me confused. Great Horned Owl? Yellow-throated? Loggerhead Shrike? Figured you had these by now. Story behind it, or just great photos of birds you’ve already counted.

    Holla. We’re all living vicariously.

    All the best,

    You will make us think you have to have a photo of it to make it count! i think you have to make a bigger photo of that lovebird. Surprised that only now you found a great horned owl? Didn’t we hear them? find their pellets? Good trip. This was a big haul. xoxo Mom

    • I confused you. The first few are the lifers…followed by my “best of the rest” photos. I wrote uncle George from Harlingen and he immediately responded! Xxx me

    Wow, highly productive as always Woody… well, perhaps not always. (No swings and misses, this trip!) The Kiskadee is indigenous, if any bird is, to Bermuda. Therefore, even I could identify that call. 🙂 You really took me away to the tropics there, and at a most opportune time given our recent weather patterns! JB
