I am surprised how my excitement for the New Year and the start of a strange and wacky adventure, at least for me, keeps building each day.
Seems unfair that any birds I see prior to January 1 don't count for my Big Year. Do I go an see the Smew prior to new years day just to see it, since there is a good chance that it might be gone by then? But I can't count it and I would have to find it again anyway.
Such are my thoughts as 2011 draws to a close. I will begin an adventure I never even imagined six months ago.
Starting in the Toronto area and then heading all the way to California. A Big Year, and one I am not even prepared for, nor even qualified to do. Guess, I really am crazy.
