5000 vs. 500

I’m following the quest of Noah Strycker to see 5000 birds in a year with great interest.  It would be quite a feat.  Even if he doesn’t succeed, the adventure is going to be fantastic.  For me, I set a goal of seeing 500 in 2015.  That’s going to be hard enough with a full-time job, family, and other activities, but I’m going to give it a try.  Fortunately, I get to travel throughout the year so there’s a chance I can make it.  My life list is only at 386 right now, so this will be quite the accomplishment if I can do it.

I’m off to a good start with 36 species so far. I saw my first ever Tundra Swans which I get to add to my life list as well.
