Birds at the Burke

Next Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. (Oct. 19th 2013) I will be presenting some of my favorite bird photos, videos and stories as part of the first annual "Birds at the Burke". In the process I will be asking questions about birds I have photographed around Union Bay. I am also hoping to give away a few photos as well.

In this post I am including a variety of photos and hoping you will let me know which birds you would like to hear more about next week at the Burke. In addition these birds are un-named, until the post script, so you can test your bird recognition skills as well.
