Naturally Avian Happenings

It has been a while since I have contributed on the Naturally Avian Blog. The past year has introduced me into a phenomenal group of amazing birdwatchers from throughout the country. Over the upcoming year, Naturally Avian will be found at a variety of birding festivals, starting with the quickly-approaching Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival (Harlingen, TX), and in early March the International Festival of Owls (Houston, MN). Later on in the spring and summer, you'll find Naturally Avian at the Biggest Week in American Birding Festival (Oak Harbor, OH), the Detroit Lakes Birding Festival (Detroit Lakes, MN), Potholes and Prairies Birding Festival (Carrington, ND), and the Horicon Marsh Birding Festival (Horicon, WI).

Recently I created a birding tour website for the services that I offer. If you're interested in learning more about the birding tours that I offer, the link below will take you to that website.

Naturally Avian can also be found on Facebook, where I share pictures of birds that I have observed recently (locally, which is often in northern Minnesota, but pictures will be shared from the recent birding trips and travels). A spectrum of bird facts and tidbits can be found with most of my posted photos too! This is one way to find out about upcoming birding trips as well.

It's been a busy year, and I'm very excited to connect all of you with my experiences in the field. Right now I am busy preparing for attending the Rio Grande Valley Birding Festival, which will be my first time ever in Texas. I hope you enjoy this photo of a Great Gray Owl, recently photographed about two weeks ago in Sax-Zim Bog. Like with all of my photography, no baiting and no "squeaking" or luring of these birds takes place in order to get the pictures. Birdwatching is all about enjoying the beauty of birds in their environment (giving them their space and comfort, and then some), and sharing those moments of awe and wonder with other birdwatchers.

Until later... Cheers and good birding!
