Bilsky's 2013 Highlights

posted by Jeff Bilsky at
on Monday, December 30, 2013 

A few years ago I started making highlight reels of all the pictures and videos I'd taken during that given calendar year at the conclusion of December. It's a way for me to relive the memories by going through all my pictures, and also, to finally get around to sharing some of the great sights I hadn't posted yet. This is by far the longest one I've made, which is a reflection of both how much fun I had in 2013 and also the fact that I bought a new camera in mid 2012 (The Nikon P510). It's a decidedly cheesy endeavor, but one that I admit I thoroughly enjoy doing. I hope that for some of you, this may bring back your own 2013 memories, and also perhaps inspire some goals for 2014. Personally, I hope to get to the Uinta Mountains more next year as many of my favorite 2013 pictures and memories are from just 2 visits there. All of these pictures and videos are from Utah except the very last one, which is from Chicago a couple of days ago. At times my excitement outweighs my steadiness or focus savvy, which will be evident in some of these, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless. I'm grateful for all the new faces and friends I've met this past year (as well as the familiar ones) and look forward to seeing you all out in the field in 2014. Thanks and good birding... BILSKY

That was great, Jeff. Seeing your images and videos reminded me of some of the posts you shared through the year. I had a feeling we'd see a Snowy Owl at the end once you mentioned Chicago. I'm jealous of that one :)

Awesome video! I think I have pictures of most of the same birds.

Thanks guys. Kenny - that Uintas trip was probably one of the best of the year.
