Year List 2018

All birders keep lists – it’s part of our psyche, it’s how we relate to the world around us, and it’s how we know our standing in the race. Of course, the Life List is the most coveted of all birding lists, but many birders keep Year Lists as well, which is a list of all the birds heard or observed during a calendar year.

Below is my 2018 Year List. Lifers, or new species to my Life List, will be shown in RED.
