So yesterday I posted that I got a shot of bird #11 for my Big Half Year, but I neglected to post bird #10:
Bird #10 was a female pileated woodpecker digiscoped at Minnesota Valley NWR using the new Swarovski ATX scope and my iPhone 4s (no adapter, I handheld it for this shot). Not bad, especially since I had to angle myself in a way to avoid window glare and all the dirt on the window.
Also, I see that people have pledge $181 so far! THANK YOU! I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. And again, I don’t care if yo pledge for me or pledge for someone else, the goal is that we get the funds for a visitor center to be built in this unique birding habitat and help conserve more land up there. Thank you, that was a fun thing to see when I checked it today.
You can see my gallery of all my birds thus far at Flickr.
