This year :). Click number 25,134 on my 1D MkIIn. I went out today thinking I have to get at least one half decent photo on the last day of the first decade of the 21st century even though the day was as dull as dishwater, slate grey skies low light and light snow. On top of that the land appeared to be devoid of any sort of wildlife, even the chickadees had abandoned me. Then out of nowhere I spotted a northern shrike, not a common bird in these parts, perched in a nearby tree. He kindly allowed me half a dozen exposures before taking to wing.
Happy New Year folks.
