2016 Green Birding List

This is a list of birds I saw in 2016 without using motorized support for travel. Though I saw 141 “green” birds in 2015, I didn’t reach my goal of 160 species. I even came short of my 2014 record. Previously, I called this list my BIGBY tally. The term BIGBY was first coined to describe a fossil-free big year (BIg Green Big Year). My earlier records are 88 birds in 2011; 115 birds in 2012; 121 birds in 2013; 142 birds in 2014; and 141 birds in 2015. I don’t have a goal for this year, but I’d still like to keep a list. I’ve been terrible at record-keeping this year as well, so some of the dates listed are much later than my actual first sighting but they represent the first eBird record for 2016. Here we go!
