So far, we are at 250 birds for the year! Way to go everyone!
Here's the link to the list: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16511&start=15

Last year, we ended up with about 272 ... so about 22 more birds. So far this year, we've seen 20 birds we didn't photograph last year. That means we are short 42 birds from last year ... I'm including the list below of "missing" birds. If anyone has a photo of any of these birds from this year, please include it in our list! I'm hoping to find that elusive Turkey still ... lol. Maybe a couple of more owls/etc. Almost down to the last month! Thanks again to everyone who has participated!

Well, ask and you shall receive! I didn't realize we still needed these 2. That was a good idea to list the "missing" birds. If it ever stops raining here I should be able to get a couple more on the list (I won't name them in case someone else gets them first!).
The recent adds by Zach and you James are just outstanding. The Northern Mockingbird, Rough-legged Hawk and Northern Pygmy Owl are particulary nice.

It's in non-breeding plumage but what are you going to do this late in the year?
