A New Year

Happy New Year!

It's been approximately 21 months since my last posting. The over extended sabbatical is over and the tales have returned. There's no shortage of birding adventures. Birding in Belize, 2014 lifers and the chase to tick as many species for the Niagara 2015 list is underway.

Jean and I had a personal best for the Niagara Region last year. During the months of November and December there were some unexpected ticks.........

......and then some misses when searching for species observed by others during the St. Catharines Christmas Bird Count.

The last species for 2014 is a bird that is becoming more and more difficult to find in Niagara. After we finished the Niagara Falls Christmas Bird Count, Jean spotted a Ring-necked Pheasant standing in an open field. Best of all, it was in the circle and was added to this year's count.


What will be the first species and last species in Niagara and beyond for 2015? Time will tell.
