Here's a piece of motivation from Robert about eBirding (One in which I agree one hundred percent!) - "Yes, it's true. eBirders are better than plain ol' ordinary birders. If the truth hurts and you're asking "Why should I use eBird?" Well then click here."
Anyway, here's how I'm doing for the year. I've submitted 749 checklists, which averages out at 3.37 per day. 541 of those checklists were submitted via BirdLog for iOS. I've submitted at least one checklist in 11 different states and 52 counties. 396 species have made their way into my checklists and I've tallied 1036 ABA Area Total Ticks thus far. With 143 days left in the year, I think I can hit 1000 checklists. I'd like to hit 420 species for the year, which is definitely possible because I've only seen a couple of eastern warblers so far. Plus, you never know what may show up on the coast! A Bar-tailed Godwit just showed up in Virginia. What's next? Any guesses?
This Tropical Kingbird was just one of my many ticks this year. Digiscoped with an iPhone 4S + Celestron Regal 80 F-ED & Phone Skope Adapter. Check out Robert's review of the Phone Skope Adapter here.
