Bird Photos Taken in Massachusetts in 2012 by Eva

I photographed 159 avian species in MA in 2012. Only some of my photos are worthy of being put on the web, and for showcasing I am further constrained by a self-imposed rule to showcase only species not given the limelight on my 2010 page or on my 2011 page. My 2013 showcased photos also do not overlap. Thus those pages cover, without overlap, quite a variety of MA avian life.

There's a photo collection spreadsheet in Excel or in html, showing where photos are located of the 236 species (by June 16, 2013 including photos taken pre-2010, but this century, on Nantucket at New Years) that I have photographed in MA.

This Venn Diagram shows how many species I photographed in each of 2010, 2011 and 2012 or only in some of those years.
