Finally, Saw & Photographed One

This movie requires Flash Player 9

I have 427 species of birds in my files, so adding new species is kind of a challenge. I’ve seen over 650 species so it’s even more of a challenge to see new species since I stay within North America. But there are some kinda common species that despite my looking for them, I’ve just not seen. Well this past week I finally got to see and photograph the Dickcissel. It’s just a little grassland sparrow but I’ve always thought there were pretty cool with those markings. And like normal, once I saw them and made my first click, I saw them all the time and had plenty to click. It’s a simple pleasure in life, seeing a new species. It was a good day!
