Bird Photos Taken in Massachusetts in 2014 by Eva

By December 31 I had photographed 154 avian species in MA in 2014 and 247 this century. The pictures are of uneven quality but then so were the sightings. I am constrained by a self-imposed rule to showcase only species not given the limelight on my 2010, 2011, 2012 or 2013 pages.

There is a photo collection spreadsheet in Excel and in html, naming which species were in each set.

This Venn Diagram shows how many species I photographed in each of 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 or only in some of those years. There are mistakes in it because the circles do not add up. Feel free to use the spreadsheet to identify mistakes. I'd appreciate the help. The Venn diagram is too crowded to add in 2014. For the record, there are 89 species that I photographed in all five years 2010-2014. There are three that I missed in 2014 that I'd gotten in each of the preceeding four years. There are seven that I photographed in 2014 that I'd not photographed before in MA.
