I was honored earlier this year, when a representative from the national Audubon society contacted me to ask if they could use one of my photos for the cover of this years American Birds Christmas Bird Count issue. The magazine is out now, and the cover looks great.
I took this photo during the Olympia, Washington Christmas Bird Count, in my friends front yard. They had several Townsend's Warblers coming to a suet feeder in a holly tree, and it was just a matter of waiting for the sun and the bird to be in the same spot at the same time, and for there not to be a branch in the way......! Nothing to it?
