Fall in the Panhandle

Well, once again I’ve managed to not post anything for several months.  My only excuse it laziness-I go birding nearly every morning that I’m not working, but processing photos is really a pain in the ass and so I let it build up until it is really daunting.

It has really not been all that great a year for birds around here, either, I’ve really not seen much that is unusual and I’ve posted so many photos of the same old birds that I just can’t seem to get too excited about posting even more pictures of them.

Anyway, here’s a few photos from the last 3 months of the same old birds.
