Here are a few stats from my year:
391 species seen, all in the ABA.
178 lifers over the year.
I hit 500 lifers on the final day of the year with a Snow Bunting.
I hit ABA #400 with a Gray-crowned Rosy-finch.
64 ABA Code 2s, 6 ABA Code 3s. an ABA Code 4, and two ABA Code 5s.
13 owls observed during the year, always an important stat for me.
I birded four states; Arizona, California, Idaho, and Washington.
I moved from Arizona to Idaho in the fall, giving myself lots of new birding chances!!
Here are a few of my favorite images of the year, in no particular order:
