Birds spotted in January

Every year my wife and I are counting the individual bird species we spot each month. Always in the beginning of the year, we reset the list and start over again. Once we have seen a species for the first time in the year, we add it to the present months list. Sometimes we are very lucky and spot a bird we have never seen before. In bird nerd language this is called a life bird or a lifer. In this article I will be listing the birds spotted in January.

Some impressions

Find below a couple of birds spotted in January and caught on camera. I usually use a 500mm f/4 lens that gives me enough space between the bird and me and makes sure I don’t distract my little friends.
