Best Minnesota Bird Photos: Year 1

As I near the end my 365 day bird photography project, I realized an index of my best bird photographs needed to be published. Most of the images were taken in the Lake Superior Region of northern Minnesota near Duluth. Although my project year ends on January 22nd, my bird photography will continue beyond that date, but I will not be dedicated to taking a picture of a bird every single day! The location index in the right hand column provides a further breakdown of my bird photography haunts!

Please note that in some instances I only have two photos of a given bird species. Thus, my top two photos are also my worst two photos!
