This update to my 2017 Photographic Big Year consist of images I consider of documentary quality, meaning while the image is good enough to make a positive identification of the species possible, it would not make it to a photo competition. This group consists of three birds that are considered rare, (32) Wood Sandpiper, (33) Lesser Black-backed Gull and (34) Grey Heron. The remaining images are of the new world version of Grey Heron - (35) Great Blue Heron and (36) Northern Waterthrush.
See all the images here.
