Bird-a-Day Challenge 2017

During the early parts of 2017 I’ll give the Bird-a-Day Challenge a go once again after taking 2016 off. 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, 2014, and 2015. My previous record is June 4th, which I reached in 2015 (at 154 days, beating my previous record by 10 days).

Technically June 4 is the date to beat but I’ve been out of birding for a while and this is more of a way to get back into it. So I doubt I’ll make it very far. One month at a time. 🙂 I sometimes post updates on my Bird-a-Day progress which you can follow on the blog.
