Birding

Birds are pretty much everywhere, but most people don’t pay them much attention. I was like that — until I moved from Europe to the US in early 2011, and noticed the birds looked different from what I was used to. I snapped some pictures and looked up what species they were. Somehow, this evolved into a full-fledged (haha!) hobby of birdwatching.

I soon discovered eBird.org as a tool to enter bird sightings, which appeals to my innate desire to keep track of everything I do in life. All of my eBird entries are distilled into the life list below: a list of all bird species I’ve seen or heard in the wild. The list includes several species identified retroactively on photos or videos I took prior to 2011. (Technical details for those in the know: I follow the eBird taxonomy, also known as the Clements Checklist. Introduced or non-native species only count if they have formed an established breeding population.)

Life count as of May, 2017: 509
