Dubrovnik and a Bit of Bosnia

Annual Bird List - 2017

Joy of joys, the year is started off with a wonderful treat in my own home state, a Great Gray Owl. I'd hoped to get in some birding while visiting family, both in Arizona, and Maryland but only managed some drive-by birding, and some done on my nephew's back porch. In August a Red-necked Stint (previous nemesis) showed up in Alameda. Hoping for a couple more 2017 lifers in Louisiana in November.
