Wow, here it is August already! Whenever I run into people who know I am doing a Big Year, the first question is always……………….so what’s your number? So let’s get right to it. For the month of July I was able to add 7 new species to the list, bringing my total to 214 for the year.
February is the shortest month of the year, but I still managed to add 18 species of birds — making 85 my total so far — and rescue two birds. I traveled 140 miles, and I had two encounters with local police while birding.
