Winter 2016-17: It's a Wrap!

all seasons in one day 50 °F

And this is the wrap-up post for this past winter. I also included some non-birding photos to spice it up because I have mainly been focused on my musical studies this year. So happy it's finally spring!!

As soon as I arrived back home from the Caribbean, I had 20 hours of rehearsal over the course of two days to prepare for what turned out to be a transcendent performance with Eddie Vedder right before Obama's Farewell Speech at McCormick Place.

On January 21, my jazz ensemble toured to the Purdue University Jazz Festival where we tied for first place out of all bands from Illinois! It was great!

In other news I saw a DOWNY WOODPECKER on that trip:

February 12 was my annual winter recital, which was my favorite one yet!

Throughout the semester, I have continued my Oak Park Bird Surveys where I have seen a few things, including this nice FOX SPARROW:

So it's been a pretty great semester - just super super busy! Stay tuned for spring migration madness, I'll try to keep up the best I can!!

Good birding,
