  1. 1. How many species have you seen so far?



Recommended Posts

I’m at 198 and have been so since October, from BC and Alberta. I’ve only seen 6 species this month! 

Quite low compared to last year, but will likely add quite a few when I go to Costa Rica in a few days, but doubt I’ll pass 2020s total of 261.

2022 looks like it should be my biggest year if everything works out

266 for the year. All in Florida.

Hubby and I took a road trip and increased our year list to 274. It will probably go down to 273 as one of those birds was a Red-crested Pochard that I don't think is ABA countable. Cool duck though! I'm glad we got to see it.

Since we haven’t done the poll for the end yet, I’ve finished the year at 249. This was my first full year of birding, I started last November, so my life list is 252, only three above the year list, as almost all the birds I saw were this year. I’m really curious to see what next years list will be like. 
 

Im gonna go to bolsa chica tomorrow to see how many species I can get. My goal is 80. 

 

I had a fantastic first year of birding, and I hope everyone else, new or not, had a great year. 
Happy new year!

Agreed, almost 200 species in less than a year is amazing! 

Thanks. I’m surprised how well I did, I saw 249 species this year, and since last November when I started, I’m at 252!

I took off from work today with the intention of looking for the Northern Shrike in my county that I haven't seen on three tries (cruddy views the third time, actually, but I'm not counting them). I ended up not going to that spot. I went somewhere else in the morning, though I stayed longer than I had initially planned. When I did finally get home I said f*** it and ended up working for an hour anyway. So I end the year with 165 species.
