Just when you think the year is about over and your chances of seeing any new birds are dwindling... surprise! Life birds have such a peculiar habit of popping up when you least expect them.
On my way back from visiting relatives this week, I spotted a pair of Whooping Cranes in someone's yard! I was super excited -- this has been one of my nemesis birds that I've been wanting to see forever, and there's no reason I haven't been able to see one up until now; just birder's luck, I guess.
