Tonight I sorted through my past few birding trips and checked off recent life birds on my ABA list. Although I do get incredibly excited when I see a new bird while out & about, my primary motivation on all my birding trips is to observe and watch the birds go about their activities. I was astonished to count up my bird list tally. 162!!!! I couldn't (& still can't!) believe it....especially since I just started in May.
Woot! Woot! I've enjoyed each bird I've seen so far and look forward to seeing as many more as I can
