Bird-a-Day Challenge 2011

I first heard about the Bird-a-Day Challenge from Nate at The Drinking Bird. Behind in my blog reading as usual, I didn’t read about the challenge until about a week into 2010 — too late to take the challenge that year. So here I am in 2011 taking the Bird-a-Day Challenge. According to the Bird-a-Day site, “Every day you add a new bird that you see or hear […] to your list of birds for that date. You may not repeat the same bird or skip a day. Any non-caged, non-captive, free flying bird is allowed […]!” I probably won’t make it out of January, but it’ll be fun to try!
