20160101-001-3January 1, 2016 and the first bird of the year was a Mourning Dove. Truly a very common, and very stupid (widely known amongst birders as “Dopes”), species around here but the year list has to start somewhere. This is not great photographic art but we have to open the year with something.

Happy New Year everyone.
