2017 Green Birding List

This is a list of birds I saw in 2017 without using motorized support for travel. 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; 141 birds in 2015; and 108 birds in 2016. Last year’s list was the result of very little effort in a barely-birded year. While I hope to get back into birding a bit more in 2017, I don’t have a particular goal for this year (except for to keep a list). Here we go!
