Bird-a-Day Challenge 2019

I’m going to give the Bird-a-Day Challenge a go once more. I’ll try to find and list a new bird for each day of the year for as long as I can. I can’t reuse birds and I can’t go back and make changes. I previously did this in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2017. I’ve got a little advantage, starting out the year in Europe. My previous record is June 4th, which I reached in 2015 (at 154 days, beating my previous record by 10 days). June 4 is the date to beat but I doubt I’ll make it that far, as I’m still a bit out of birding. One month at a time.
