Unrelated to this competition y'all are talking about.... :P

But from January 25-27 I'm going to be joining the Delaware Ornithological Society for a trip to New York. Montauk Point, to be exact, out on Long Island. I'm expecting 20+ lifers so hopefully the weather holds long enough to go!! I can't wait, it's going to be one awesome trip. :D

On the 26-27 (possibly the 25) I'm going to the Salton Sea with my Audubon Chapter. And then in April (can't remember the dates) I'm going to the Western Sierras with the same group, to see Greater Sage-Grouse at their lek, plus we'll see (most likely) American Dippers, and some other birds I'm forgetting.

I'm going to find the info thing on that, so that I can list the other birds they said we could see.

Sometime towards the end of May our family is going to the Portland and Casco bay area, Maine for several days. I hope to get my shorebird list (2 species :mellow:) and gull list (Ring-billed Gull :rolleyes:) improved a LOT.

I know how you feel! I used to have a shorebird list of 2 as well. Now it's almost 30.

I have 25 Warblers not including Yellow-breasted Chat. No terns though.

Does anyone have a favorite patch that they bird at? I almost always bird on private property close to our house, I have seen 143 species there. Not bad when eBird shows that 263 species have ever been seen in my county.

Does that count as your yard? Pretty nice yardlist if so!

One of my favorite areas to bird is at Phinizy Swamp Nature Park, I have a total of 149 species spotted there.

26 shorebirds, so pretty good. 16 Gulls/terns. And 20 warblers. Not including the chat.

My favorite birding area here, is not decided. In STL, it was no doubt Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary. One of the best places in MO to bird.

@ Liam, it would be an awesome yard list! It is within sight of the yard, though. We know the person that owns the land and so we go in "the woods" all the time, with the exception of hunting season.

YES! Finally, someone to talk about it with. Currently, I'm lost in a cave, with some diamond and gold. If I can get out, I'm happy. :rolleyes:
