Bird Photos Taken in Massachusetts in 2013 by Eva

By December 24 I had photographed 164 avian species in MA in 2013 and 238 this century. The pictures are of uneven quality but then so were the sightings. I am constrained by a self-imposed rule to showcase only species not given the limelight on my 2010, 2011 or 2012 pages.

There is a photo collection spreadsheet in Excel and in html, naming which species were in each set.

This Venn Diagram shows how many species I photographed in each of 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 or only in some of those years. There are mistakes in it because the circles do not add up. Feel free to use the spreadsheet to identify mistakes. I'd appreciate the help.
