Fair Warning, Overload coming

So, for reasons that are my own I decided long ago that I won't count birds from before I consider myself to have started birding. Also thus decided that I would (most likely) not post anything to iNat from before I first started using it. My first post was March 1st, 2014. Recently you may remember I posted my 10,000th observation. I was doing a bit of review after that and "realized", kind of already knew really, that I had skipped posting a number of things in that first year of iNatting while I was getting used to it.
More recently I was able to photograph my first daytime screech owl in DFW. But knew I had seen and photographed one in the valley on my first ever trip down there. A valley only subspecies though so kind of different. But when I posted the DFW one it showed as my first one on iNat. So I started going through my ebird records and saw that that trip was within a month or so of my beginning to use iNat.

At which point I realized I have a ton of stuff from multiple trips I happened to take that spring all over the state. I was a relatively new birder also then so I was chasing everything, spent 3 days in the valley and made my first trip to High Island that spring. So many of what were my firsts that will supercede what I have posted currently showing as firsts.
It took me a while but I tracked down the external hard drive where I have all those photos and realized I never even edited most of those for some reason. So I've been working on doing so quite a bit.
Thus consider this a warning that you will soon see a massive inflow of observations from 2014 by me. I have greatly enjoyed reliving the memories as I edit the photos and found some cool stuff. So I am excited to be able to share all these.
