2013 in Review – Lee’s Birdwatching Adventures Plus

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 220,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 9 days for that many people to see it.

We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers; (1 Thessalonians 1:2 KJV)

Thank you all for visiting this site during 2013. I trust you have learned many things about the birds and other things of creation and have also been blessed. Also, thank you for making it possible to have the 1 Millionth visitor arrive on October 20, 2013. WOW!

Will do the best we can to make 2014 even better.

Happy New Year!

Lord Bless,

Lee and all the contributing writers and photographers.

  1. Hello, Lee, i happened upon this site while searching for birds of the bible, specifically sparrows, and was wondering if i could use some of your photos on facebook? Seeing as your name (copyright) is on each picture you would get the credit.


    • Hi Jasmene,
      Not all photos on the blog are mine. If “by Lee” or “by Dan” are on the photo, then they can be used. The ones with a “©” are usually in the public domain or are Creative Commons and can be used.
      The photos with “by” are ones that I have obtained permission to use and those photographers would need to be contacted by you.
      If you need further assistance, contact me at Lee@leesbird.com.
      Thanks for finding us and trust you return often. Lee
