It's been a while since I posted here. I've been focusing on a new podcast, The Bird Banter Podcast, I have been producing, and have been posting my birding notes primarily to the BirdBanter.com site. Still, I believe in the Steemit platform, and hope to post here more regularly.

This week my good buddy Ken and I took a long Wednesday and headed east of the Cascade Mountains in search of a few first of the year species. We started out strongly with Veery Catharus fuscescens, Dusky Flycatcher Empidonax oberholseri and shortly later Lewis's Woodpecker Empidonax oberholseri all seen before 9 AM.

The rest of the day we looked for and did not find a number of FOY species, but did have a lot of fun and got nice looks at some beautiful birds. Some of the better photos are shown here.

Oh! For a long time you were not here! I thought you abandoned steemit.

The eagle looks very huge and brutal!
Tanager is a very bright and beautiful bird, similar to an oriole... and a mango :)

You are a great photographer. Birds and your photography are soo colorful.
