Comments on The Brownstone Birding Blog: Big January 2010 Ends At 101 Species

kathiebirds-Arizona or not-you still beat me fair and square. The top lister in the Hartford Audubon saw like 140 species in January so it's not like I didn't have a chance.Either way it's just a good excuse to get out and see lots of birds. We'll see how it goes next year.-Let me know when you're coming to CT. Maybe we can get in some birding.

Larry, I think that perhaps we should have a contest to beat our own records next year. I know I live in an amazing place with so many winter bird species. It's not quite fair for someone who lives in the north to compete with someone who lives in the south. Anyone in Texas or Florida could beat us both also. Another idea would be to compare our list to the species seen and recorded on eBird for that new year/month. What do you think? I know I beat my record from last year, but next year it will be even harder to beat that! You are the one who got me eBirding and I am so thankful for that. Perhaps I can finally meet you when I come to CT this summer. Dawn says you are really nice and funny too.



Wow, an impressive January list, Larry!

Larry, these are lovely shots. I especially like the lead photo of the heron. Have you been over to RockPaperLizard? He has a special page just for heron pictures and information. Bet he'd love to add that photo! ~ks

Congrats on 101! Sounds like a lovely last day of Big January.

We finished the month at 116. Competitive birding is fun, but we too are glad that it's over and we can go back to watching birds because we like too.

Come on spring!
Warren and Lisa



Congrats! I knew you could do it. ;)

forestal-Pease is nice along with Bear Hill WMA which is just right down the road.Yes-it was fun birding with you again.I'm sure we'll cross paths again before the year is over.

Vern-My family is doing well thanks-I hope everything is going well down your way too. I know you are a Pats fan like I am. Does that mean you'll be rooting for the Saints?

Early Birder-Sounds like there's plenty of birds to be seen in your parts too.I wonder how many species we share that are common to your area and mine?

Kathiebirds-I enjoy your great enthusiasm. Sorry I wasn't able unable to present a challenge to you.The birds are here but it was a little tougher for me this year.Maybe next year.

mathew-Spring will soon be upon us and then you won't have to fight the weather as much. Maybe you should make a list of the humber of different types of boats you encounter in a month since you're not into birding.

Congratulations on a productive month. It was somewhat of a mild month, but everytime I planned to get out, the weather did not cooperate.

2010-02-04T01:03:37.757-05:00

Congrats Larry! I think we were both trying to beat our last year's total and both trying to remember to just enjoy the birds and the birding experience. Once I got the scaled quail in Sycamore Canyon I was so happy I didn't care anymore. Then, when I found out I had missed a rarity with Gus I really kicked myself! My post is up (in an hour from now) and I finsished with 113!

2010-02-03T19:05:49.636-05:00

Hi Larry. My home County is landlocked but with varied locations plus a 70 mile drive to the coast always helps to add to the list any time of year. To put my UK year total into perspective a 'real' local birder already has a County total of 107!!
Cheers, Frank.



Larry, Excellent! Congratulations..

Hi Larry,
Congrats on reaching your goal. Thought I would check in and say, "Hi!" Hope life is treating you well.

Larry, glad you found the creeper and yellow bellied, Pease sounds like a nice spot, will have to check it out. It was nice birding with you again sat.

Now, THAT sounds toooooo cold Larry...brrrrrrr! :c)
Congrats on passing the 100 mark!

2010-02-02T20:49:14.932-05:00

Ruth-Connecticut welcomes you. We'd be glad to have you visit. I understand that you are in a totally different zone and the birds that you see are all relative to where you live and the time of year.Thanks for being a good sport and participating.

Chris-That is something. I guess I should be thankful for the number of species that are possible in CT. It certainly isn't the best birding areas but I guess it is better than some areas. I wish I could send you a few extra species in exchange for some of your photography skills.

Early birder-Relaxed approach? If you saw 99 species without trying hard you must be in a good area or be one heck of a birder-probably both.



Hi Larry. Thanks for sharing your January count. I...

2010-02-02T13:12:53.080-05:00

Hi Larry. Thanks for sharing your January count. I took a more relaxed approach last month and only found 99 but there will be plenty for us both to enjoy during the rest of 2010. FAB.

2010-02-02T03:47:50.784-05:00

Hi,
I'm amazed that your are seeing in on month the number of species I see in one year... Not even that, i only saw 94 last year... You are living in a very rich environment!!!! The eastern bluebird picture is my favorite tehre... i love this bird and really have to travel to see it one day... Thanks for sharing this nice January month with us!

Congratulations on your 101 birds. I think I will have to visit Connecticut (or further south) next January :-)
