Break Over, Time for 2015

So I haven't posted in a while and I have an excuse.  My wife had a baby!  So birding time has gone way down!  I've managed to do two CBCs here in Georgia and add a couple of birds to my life list and I've thought decided to tone down my goals and focus on a few specific goals.  Here are a couple of the pictures from my end of the year.  

American Kestrel

Canada Goose and 2 Ross's Geese

Brown Thrasher, My new State's Bird!

Juvenile Rufous Himmingbird

So that's the end of the 2014.  I got some great times and some great events.  I am not going to set any real ambitious goals or specific goal birds.  At least not publicly.  I am still getting to know my new state and would like to get my Georgia list.  Currently, my Georgia list is at 180 species and I'd like to at least 230, maybe 240 if I get lucky.  With my little one by my side, I am hoping to get some new birds on my Georgia list and pass on her love of birding.  Here's how 2014 ended for me:
