2011 Quest for Birds
For 2011, I took on the project of trying to see how many species of birds I could see. I didnít plan on any trips outside of the Western US states at the time, but later added a trip to Hawaii. I planned a trip to Northern California in January/February, a brief one to San Diego in March, a 6 week trip to the Southwest (with a stop in Central Oregon on the way home), the usual annual trip to Yosemite in June, and a trip to Montana/Wyoming in July. In addition, I planned on doing a lot more local birding around Washington this year.
I have written a chronicle of that Quest, and Iím putting it up here, a month at a time. The first couple of months are mostly just words, but later I started adding pictures to the reports that I wrote each day that I saw a new species of bird for the year (and sometimes at other times, too.
