Bird-a-Day Challenge 2015

Again in 2015 I’ll give the Bird-a-Day Challenge a go. This blog post from Audubon Magazine explains the challenge: Bird-A-Day Challenge Begins New Years Day 2012. I previously participated in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. My previous record is May 23, which I reached in 2012 (144 days (leap year)) and 2013 (143 days). Since I’ve been more interested in green birding lately, I don’t know that I’ll strive as hard this year as in previous challenges. So May 24 is the date to beat this year, but I don’t think I’ll make it that far. We’ll see. 🙂 I sometimes post updates on my Bird-a-Day progress which you can follow on the blog.
