Favorite Photos of 2011

Happy New Year!!

A new year has begun, but I am still looking back on the old year. While it often seemed that birding and photography got swamped by other things -such as a hurricane :( - when I look back I realize that I had many good trips and good opportunities for both. Here is a first sampling of a few of my personal favorite photos from 2011.

Green Heron - late February, Wakodahatchee Wetlands, Florida
Olive-throated Parakeet - March, Tikal, Guatemala
Golden-crowned Kinglet - November, Heinz NWR, Philadelphia, PA

Ruby-throated Hummingbird - July, my backyard, South Newfane, VT

Yellow Warbler - June, wetlands along Connecticut River, Hinsdale, NH
Bohemian Waxwing - mid-February, Putney School, Putney, VT

Tricolored Heron - late February, Green Cay Wetlands, Florida

Roadside Hawk - March, Hopkins, Belize
 
More soon. Hope you have good birding in 2012.

Chris, I can see why these are your favorites for 2011. Fantastic images! Love the Bohemian Waxwings and Roadside Hawk, though all are wonderful.

Wow! Great photos. The Ghreen Heron is my favorite. The colors of the twigs match the bird--that's good accessorizing!

WOW--these are gorgeous. Lovely light on the Green Heron.
I have birded Belize 3 times and this is the best photo of Roadside Hawk I have seen!
I would love a copy to frame of the Kinglet eyeing up that berry. Do you sell any of your photos, Chris?

If I can get my good printer working properly, I would be happy to send a photo to you.
