Today is the start of a New Year, which to me means new birds and also birding resolutions. Here are four of my resolutions which I’m going to try to achieve this year:
1. I’m going to try to submit a checklist to eBird every time I go birding and also take field notes and make sketches more regularly.
2. Learning more about my camera and how to take better photos. (I have some exciting news on the camera front, but I will keep it under wraps until a little later.)
3. Trying to get others interested in the beauty of birds and birding.
4. Some of the species I’d like to see this year are: Boreal Chickadee, Gray Jay, Evening Grosbeak, and a Western Tanager.
Do you have any bird goals or resolutions for 2014, or nemesis bird on your list to find?
Happy New Year and the best birding in 2014!
