Happy New Year, hopefully some of you got new some new equipment to try out for 2022!  I was impressed with this week’ shots considering nearly every day was raining or deeply overcast.

Notable finds this week: Black-Headed Gull (non-breeding plumage), Common Gallinule, Greylag Goose, Harlequin Ducks, Northern Shrike, Redhead Ducks, and the usual assortment of raptors.

This week’s cover shot goes to Brian Doherty with a Wild Turkey in great light and of course thanks to Jim Botta for all of his help picking out the photos.
