2022 Year Lists!

I'm currently sitting at 395 for the year. So close to my goal of 400!!! I'm not sure I'll be able to get five more new species this year though. I've seen everything easy in Central California that I can think of, so just the rarities are left now.

I can send a Limpkin your way 😉

The craziest part is that you managed nearly 400 ABA species in a year without going anywhere north or east of Montana. California definitely is the most diverse state for birds.

Two year birds this afternoon: Eared Grebe in DC which was found this morning I believe, and one of the Orange-crowned Warblers also in DC. The hoped-for lingering Blue-headed Vireo at the latter site was a no-show, unfortunately (though it would not be a year bird). These bring me up to 206 species for the year.

Another one today: Nashville Warbler (!) which I had missed during migration. It was at the Blue-headed Vireo place (which was a no-show today as well). The Painted Bunting reported from the Blue-headed Vireo place was only seen by the finder, and not by the dozen-plus folks who converged there hoping to spot it. I did get to catch up with local birders though.

So, today, December 11, I saw four species of warblers (Myrtle/Yellow-rumped, Pine, Orange-crowned, and Nashville).

My mistake, at least a couple of people besides the finder had brief glimpses of the bunting ... just minutes before I arrived at the site.

I’m at 287 for the year, and with my Florida trip coming up, I should be able to get to 300. My county list for the year is 243, which is only 39 in the county. Not sure if I’ll be able to get that up to 250, since I only have 6 more days because of the Florida trip. Oh well, there’s always next year.

I'm still at 207 for the year, and I'm not sure if I can or will see any new year birds. I'll keep my eyes open. Maybe the upcoming brutal cold will send some northern birds south, or Appalachian 'mountain' birds to DC.

Good luck with that, hope you up that life list.

I'm at 287 for the year, with the last three being Red-breasted Nuthatch, Purple Finch, and Greater Scaup.

Hopefully this winter blast will bring in some good birds! 3 More species before the year is out would be really nice.

Hit up the big lakes in the county one last time before the storm hammers us.  Nearly all completely iced up.  Small patches of open water were hogged by the "normal" stuff.  Very low chance of getting to my goals of 220 for year, and 250 for lifetime.  Maybe some Pine Siskins will move into the feeders.  Might have a shot still on the river, that should hopefully still be open.

I'm considering going out tomorrow morning if they're sighted today.

Got it! That brings me to 368 and very likely my last new bird of the year.
