Year List

April and I have set the the goal for 2008 of seeing 200 bird species. So far we have only managed one birding outing, on January 1, to Lake Copan. It was very cold that day, so we did most of our birding from the car. Most of the birds on this list were seen on that trip, plus a few more picked up here and there.

Great Blue Heron
Canada Goose
Common Goldeneye
Northern Harrier
Bald Eagle
Red-tailed Hawk
American Kestrel
American Coot
Ring-billed Gull
Rock Pigeon
Downy Woodpecker
Blue Jay
American Crow
Eastern Bluebird
American Robin
Northern Mockingbird
European Starling
Dark-eyed Junco
Northern Cardinal
Red-winged Blackbird
House Sparrow

22 birds, not the best start, perhaps, but a start.

Dafydd, I mean this in the best possible way, but please, please, spell check.

If all else fails, install the Google Tool bar. One of it's options is a spell checker for web forms.
