Have you ever had the dream of participating in a Big Year? I have, but I probably won’t be able to fulfill my dream until later on in life.
But until then, I have been reading a wonderful blog about four Calgarians participating in a Canadian Big Year for both birds and mammals.
The blog is Fur & Feathers 500 – a Canada Big Year for Birds and Mammals. There are some beautiful photos in this blog and wonderful posts about their journeys across Canada. I would recommend subscribing to their blog to get regular updates on their progress and lists. I hope by the end of 2012 Brian, Ray, Phil, and Mike are able to achieve their goal of 500 species of birds and mammals!
