For the last three years I have produced a calendar of Wisconsin scenes to welcome in the new year. This year the theme is birds. The 2013 calendar is available for anyone to download and print for personal use. The file is in .pdf format and it is large (about 8.5 mb) to make it suitable for printing.
Birds in the calendar are shown in the gallery below. None of these birds is unique to Wisconsin, but that is where I photographed them. Wisconsin, like most of the United States, is a beautiful place. I hope you find some of that beauty in these photos.
