  1. Looks like you are off to a decent start. I am at 36 birds right now, with only one real birding trip. I am off to see a Northern Pygmy Owl tomorrow after work.

  2. Robert, Good luck! That would be a lifer for me! I hope you get it!


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
