Ain’t that the truth!!  I had 103 in a single day, with 24 lifers, at the San Diego Birding Festival in late February.  Takes me 3 months to get to that number here in my county in MI.  

I’ve had 149 here in one day. I believe it was in mid April.

I'm still at 191 for the year, my college started right after I chased the Brambling, and I haven't managed to get in any significant birding in during the past three weeks, just an hour or two here and there. 

I do have a free day tomorrow though, so I'm going to be chasing the Oriental Turtle-Dove and some other rarities (Tufted Duck, Curlew Sandpiper, Laughing Gull, ect). I haven't been to the coast yet this year, so I should have no problem adding 20+ species to my year list.

Good luck! The dove is another that I really, really want to chase but there’s no time. I feel like all the really big rarities are in central and northern Cali right now.

Got it! It was being really cooperative this morning!

I added 26 yesterday, so my yearlist is now at 217 species!

Nice. I'm still stuck in the 190s. I haven't been able to get out since I got the turtle dove two weeks ago. Still haven't been to the ocean despite living twenty minutes away so I'm missing quite a few easy species.

I get the feeling, I was stuck there for several weeks as well after I chased the Brambling. I'm still missing a good group of the easy costal birds as well, the fog rolled in right when I got to the coast and that shut down any sea-watching plans I had.

I’ve only moved up to 139 and not to brag, but I did see both Canada goose and Northern flicker the other day. 

Been slowly adding a few species here and there from going through recordings and photos from Costa Rica, but I don’t think I’ll add anymore than 5 to the total, if that.

I still have yet to actually go out anywhere interesting, but it’s reading week next week so I’m hoping to go to a few spots. ~160 species is probably the maximum I can get to until the end of March.
Last years total was 245 species, so I’m almost exactly 100 away from that. Hoping it’ll be the first year I can crack 300.

Isn't an inland Poorwill in February a mega?

Yes. I totally freaked out this morning. I was actually in the lower Sierras, just out of the foothills. Ebird is showing it as the first for the area by over a month. There was another one seen a few days ago here in Sac. It's been unseasonally warm recently so maybe that has something to do with it.
