Christmas Bird Count 2010

January 4, 2011

On Sunday, Jan 2, 2011 I volunteered in my first Christmas Bird Count.  I haven’t been birding for long (only ~9 months) so there is a lot for me to learn, and it was really great to be out birding with several excellent birders.  I personally saw 54 species, of which 15 or so were new birds for me.  Not bad!  This pulls my first year’s list up over 100.  I now stand at 105 and hope to get to at least 200 by this time next year!
