Canada Big Year!

Ok, I know that I am a few days late in officially deciding to do this, but it’s go time. I am officially doing a Canada Big Year in 2013.

I had originally been planning to travel abroad, likely to South America & Australia, but I have decided to postpone these adventures, and instead focus on birding in Canada for the year.

What is a Canada Big Year? Well, it basically means that I am going to scour the country in an effort to see/hear as many different bird species as possible within the 2013 calendar year. There is no reward, it is purely for the love of birdwatching!

I don’t really have a strategy quite yet, but I will be focusing most of my attention in Ontario. There are a few reasons for this, the most important one being that it is my home base.

I am going to keep provincial/territorial, Norfolk County, and property lists, as well as a cumulative Canada list.

I will try to update my blog as often as possible with updates and pictures. I hope you enjoy!

Good birding,
