Alan asked what birds we saw on our trip. I just finished our record-keeping: We saw 94 species of birds on that three day backpacking trip.
And thus we launch our modified BIGBY effort. We'll do a "Public Transit" Big Green Big Year instead of a human powered Big Year.
We're making an effort not to get obsessed, but it will be fun to see what kind of list of birds we can generate this way. We didn't start until Feb 3, and between the 3 day hiking trip and an hour at Palo Alto Baylands (by bike) this afternoon, we are now up to 104 species for the PT-BIGBY list.
