You've got me by a couple. I'm at 38 right now.

Birding is Fun! said...

Make that 39 as I got three Gadwalls in a pond on my way to my evening job!

sweetbay said...

That's quite a list. I am so sorry to hear about your computer troubles, what a bother!

Larry said...

Kim of curious birder and Warren and Lisa Strobel are also doing a Big January. I enjoy looking at the same species we share on our lists as well as the differences.

This is a great site you have here. I have a travel blog myself which I hope to be a top resource for vacation destination information.

I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other.

Please let me know if this is possible.


Larry said...

Uh Oh-I've got a lot of catching up to do this weekend.I only added one bird during the work week.-A Pileated Woodpecker to make 55.

DeniseinVA said...

Goodness Kathie, that's quite an impressive and wonderful list.

Birding is Fun! said...

You're whippin' me now. I've only been able to add a handful in the last couple of days.

Kathie Brown said...

Robert and Larry, you both must realize I live in such a unique area for bird watching. Perhaps we should do this race on a percentage basis of possible species in each state? Still, it is fun to see what species we are all seeing.

Sweet bay, why thank you!

Jason, I will havwe to think about that and get back to you, but thanks for asking.

Denise, I am getting to know where to see birds in my state really well so it is getting much easier for me to accumulate a large list!

Congratulations on a wonderful January of birding in amazing Arizona! I live up near Gilbert, and had a great month as well...what a treat to live here right now. I just love your appreciate all the information you have here...your photographs are amazing & of course the prose that goes with them is great to read too. Best wishes as you continue on to a great 2010...fellow eBirder (we need to get more folks in AZ to use this great tool).
