Welcome to 2016 everyone!
I can’t believe that 2015 is over — it went by incredibly fast for me, but was a simply wonderful year. There were so many great birding opportunities and adventures, from birding in Europe, to my very successful Great Canadian Birdathon, the little bit of birding I did in the Northwest Territories, the book signing with Myrna Pearman, and using my new Nikon camera and lenses.
With my trips and a little bit of luck, I added to my various lists last year:
I saw a total of 176 species in Alberta this year — beating last year’s list by five species. Mostly because of our trip to Europe, I added 70 species to my Life List, bringing it up to 343 species. My goal this year is to crack 350 species, which should be quite manageable.
I’m looking forward to what this year has in store for me, birding and otherwise. Happy birding and a happy and healthy new year to all!
