I’m determined to increase the number of birds I photograph in 2017. In 2016 I only photographed 41 different birds. It was a busy year and I didn’t have much time to go bird watching. 2017 will be different. I will have much more time in the second half of this year to photograph birds.

On Saturday morning I was watching the bird feeder and saw a Downy Woodpecker getting some seeds. That was the first time I’ve ever seen a Downy Woodpecker actually at the feeder. I also saw an American Goldfinch with winter plumage visiting the feeder. I know it’s the time of the year I’ll be seeing less and less visitors at the feeder, but I thought that was cool to see the Downy Woodpecker and the winter plumage American Goldfinch. Here are some pictures.
On this episode I talk about being a birder and finding new birds. See the new bird below. I also talk about Romney’s budget, the shooting at FRC today, Podcasting, and play a voicemail message from Kyle. Leave a comment or call 202-709-3029 to leave a voicemail.
