BOGS bird walk, Jan 24, 2013, West D-street and Aspen (parking), in Springfield.
Also called "Eastgate Woodlands"

We hiked West on Pre's trail, then further NW along canoe channel (still Pre's Trail) to a pond.
A few caveats about my picture-taking on BOGS trips: I am not trying to document every bird sighting. I simply take some pictures as we go along, but I miss probably half to two-thirds of them because taking pictures often means not LOOKING at the bird with binoculars. Often it comes down to doing one or the other; looking at the bird or taking pictures of it.

Secondly, I don't always hear the group's consensus on the ID of every bird I photograph - so my captions will often be wrong. You can add comments below any individual picture in the Picassa album online to correct my ID, or you may email me to correct me about wrong bird IDs and I will update the caption. The best way might be to include the caption of the picture in question so I can find the right picture to fix. DO NOT USE THE "REPLY" BUTTON to contact me or all 61 people might get your email!! Instead; just begin a new email to: pnhks55@yahoo.com

Also, if anyone else takes pictures they would like for me to add to our trip albums, you can email the pictures to me. Just send them as they come out of the camera if you wish, and I will probably do some post-processing before uploading them to the album.

VIEWING THE PICTURES 1. The pictures can be viewed INDIVIDUALLY by clicking on them, then navigating forward or backward through the album using the "<" and ">" arrows on the left and right sides of the individual pictures;

2. OR they can be viewed as a SLIDESHOW with stop/go and forward/back controls. The slideshow choice is found in the full album view page, near the top left of the group of pictures.

LARGER IMAGES: You can click on any individual picture to view it. Then, if any more enlargement is possible you can see it by clicking on the magnifying glass icon with a plus sign in it, which is found above the center of the picture
