2. Visit 6 new birding locations
A trip to Southeastern Arizona can help fulfill resolutions 2 and 3.
3. Add 6 new U.S. Life Birds.
4. Improve skill at identifying these 6 birds.
– Greater and Lesser Scaup
– Long-billed and Short-billed Dowitchers
– Immature Sharp-shinned and Cooper’s Hawks
Which is the Long-billed and which is the Short-billed Dowitcher, or are they both the same species?
5. Buy a new birdmobile
Not this kind, thinking more like a 4-wheel drive SUV.
6. Participate in a Big Sit.
These guys were not sitting, but if you are interested in birding, The Big Year was a somewhat interesting movie.
A movie current making the rounds is Pelican Dreams, dealing with Brown Pelicans in California.
