The Holyoke Bird List

I’ve started a list of all the species of birds I’ve seen in Holyoke. Most — except for the Baltimore Oriole — are birds I’ve seen since I started this blog just over a year ago. In most cases, I was able to photograph them.

And, most are birds I either saw in the immediate downtown area or within a short walk of downtown (for example, along the Connecticut River). As of mid-November, 2012, the list stands at 43 species.

Most are pretty common. Some aren’t.

I’m looking forward to watching it grow.
