But in the midst of what is still general chaos for me, I find a little sense of order is regained by looking at some of my images. I can remember where I was when I took each and every one of these images. Fancy that! I don't know where I put the damn measuring tape or that pair of pliers, but I know exactly where I was when I took each of these photos. That makes me feel a bit better. I hope you enjoy looking at them!

Thanks for stopping by and good birding to you!

We went birding a few years back there too..Did a Birders who Blog, Tweet and Chirp get together..it was lots of fun.
A most beautiful series of photographs! Each and every one of them are fantastic! I'm especially fond of the Say's Phoebe, Wilson's Warbler and Anna's Hummingbird (awesome tail feathers!)images.ReplyDelete
It's never easy to relocate. Unpacking seems to take forever. A little at a time. You'll get there.
It's funny, I have taken thousands of bird photographs and I can remember where every one of them was taken too. That says a lot about the beauty and impact of nature.
Happy birding in your new area! Thanks for bringing brightness into my day with these lovely images.
Dawn, Julie, thank you both for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Julie, you are so kind.ReplyDelete
Happy you're slowly getting unpacked and organized. Don't push yourself too hard; it'll all get done. Lovely photos. Nice to see that you're getting some photos in your new area!ReplyDelete
Lovely images and love your commentary. It is amazing how memories are linked to birds and revisiting photos and blogging about them restores order when chaos seems to reign otherwise!ReplyDelete
very nice photos of some pretty birds. Hope the settling in progresses and things find their place again.ReplyDelete
Great collection of photos. I like the capture of the little Kestrel looking back at you.ReplyDelete
Lovely series! Such a variety! For me, my archive also serves as a sort of diary.ReplyDelete
