Townsend's Solitaire record pics +epic weather this week

Going to post this early, as I'm getting more and more excited about this weather forecast... This is serious rarity weather... Not the best I've ever seen or anything, but SERIOUS rarity weather....


Threw together some record photos of the TOSO in Hamilton on Oct 11, 2012 -

Uploaded  them to my flickr page, that I just updated a few days ago:

Makes me feel like I should get out birding! And I probably will! (hopefully the day this auto-posts - monday) ...... 


get out and bird! 


Late day update: MOTHER of god, look at that next low that's headed for the Great Lakes... 

Thursday.... Time to get out and bird, people!
