Backyard Big Year, I've seen some great birds, including 4 new birds for my overall yard list--Great Black-backed Gull, Gadwall, Common Merganser, American Black Duck. On January 1, I saw 36 species. The next day, I saw four additional species for the year. Since then I've hit a wall, and haven't come up with any new species. But I'm digiscoping and taking pictures with a goal of getting shots of 150 species in the yard this year--so far up to 25 species. So life is good. I won't post weekly here, but I will post monthly updates and perhaps other highlights. Meanwhile you can check out the daily action on the Backyard Big Year blog or on Facebook.
Good yard birding!
