2014 Arenal Bird Count

10,000 Birds

But the prospects of our trip grew even more exciting once we learned that our stay would coincide with the Conteo de Aves Arenal 2014 or 2014 Arenal Bird Count. When the proprietors of Costa Rica’s Finca Luna Nueva Lodge graciously invited Corey and me to visit, we were both thrilled at the prospect of awesome Costa Rican birds at an amazing ecolodge.

First Phoebe of 2014

10,000 Birds

I finally saw my first migratory Eastern Phoebe of 2014 today at Rockaway Community Park in Queens! As I have for the last several years, I will now ask the same question of midwesterners and northeasterners that I ask every year: When did you see your first Eastern Phoebe of 2014? Here are my arrival dates for my first Eastern Phoebes of the year for the last nine years: 2014 – 29 March.

SALTEX 2014 – Visit Impression

Jochen’s 2014 Year List

10,000 Birds

Outlook and goals for 2014. In a funny twist of fate, it seems that 2014 will be much the same as 2012 and 2013 have been, with family trips to somewhere in France and business trips to Indonesia and Kazakhstan. The year 2014 started out as 2013 did, with a family holiday in southern France, where I was able to spot a few species I am very unlikely to see anywhere else this year. What about the competitive element in my 2014 year list? A very good start into 2014.

Birding 2014 listing year list Once again it is a new year and once again I will commit to listing the birds I see during the year! We have no plans beyond Broome whatsoever at the moment, so we did put a fair bit of an effort in on New Year’s Day together to get a good start. There was one big problem that really restricted what we would see and that Cyclone Christine had just travelled down the coast from north of us and had brought flooding rain.

Best Bird of the Year 2014

10,000 Birds

2014 has been a good year for us at 10,000 Birds. Larry starts us off right with an owl that makes birders drool: I was able to see and photograph many great birds in 2014 but my Best Bird of the Year would have to be the Great Gray Owl , the largest Strix in North America. Patrick had many birds to choose from for his Best Bird of the Year but he chose a new species for him in Costa Rica, a real regional rarity: My BBOTY for 2014 goes to Hudsonian Godwit.

Hong Kong Trip Report: February 2014

10,000 Birds

I visited Hong Kong from February 20-27, 2014. The sprawling city-state of Hong Kong is, without a doubt, one of the great capitals of the world, a gleaming metropolis where centuries of Eastern and Westerns culture blend with commerce to produce a true 21st century society. Despite impressive, often rampant development, Hong Kong reserves 40% of its land as greenspace. The result is a nature lover’s paradise rich with mountains, beaches, and birds. Lots and lots of birds!

Duncan’s 2014 List

10,000 Birds

2013 was a strange year for me, staring in the UK, ending in Borneo and spending large tracks of the year not really seeing many birds in New Zealand. In many ways that seems to be the pattern, as the major holiday breaks for New Zealand are over December and January; the year before I started in tropical Queensland and ended in Thailand and the UK.

On a larger scale, I have no particular plans to get outside the ABA area in 2014, but I would like to time a trip back east with the spring migration this time around, and it’s been far, far too long since the west coast has seen hide or hair of me. One more thing – I don’t know whether 2014 will bring any new bird tattoos, but if it does, you guys will be the first to know.

Redgannet’s Year List 2014

10,000 Birds

This year Redgannet has agreed to include birds on his year list only if they are logged from a site that he has either not birded before, or has not visited for more than 5 years. Whilst his nomadic lifestyle allows him to bird all around the world, he tends to favour certain spots and sticks to where he knows. If he is to become a better birder, he must try harder! So this year he will have to stretch his wings a little and explore further afield if he is to amass a decent roll call.

Best Bird of the Weekend (Last of 2014)

10,000 Birds

The calendar year 2014 has just about run its course. What a way to end 2014’s birding. And that’s a wrap. It’s all over but the year bird counting, so take stock of any species you’ve added this weekend. Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was New York State’s first Couch’s Kingbird in the incongruous location of the West Village in Manhattan.

Best Bird of the Weekend (First of May 2014)

10,000 Birds

One of the many ancillary benefits of becoming a birder, apart from an elevated social status and encyclopedic knowledge of taxonomy, is a subtle grasp of phenology. But you don’t have to be wise to nature’s ways to realize that spring is mighty slow to fully bloom in some parts of the world. The birds seem to be dragging their proverbial heels this year, but migration still rewards those who would brave the bitter May chill!

10,000 Birds

The year 2014 is approaching its imminent end, which means different things for different people. For those of us interested in observing avifauna, the last six or so weeks of a year offer enough time and opportunity to finish up with the year list we’d love to look back on. Have you been working on yours? I was both surprised and pleased to spy a Bald Eagle flying over my house, which is quite uncommon so far from the lake.

Why is camping so interesting? I ask because, despite my deep affection for warmth, indoor plumbing, and uninterrupted Internet access, I found myself and my family enjoying an overnight out of doors. Camping and birding both fall under the category of “nature” activities, yet the two seem only tangentially related. How many of you birders enjoy camping and how many of you would rather skip the whole thing?

Best Bird of the Weekend (First of July 2014)

Quick show of hands… how many of you in the U.S. kept a special eye out for Bald Eagles ? My favorite sighting this weekend was not of the regal representative of my nation’s pride but rather a single brilliant Indigo Bunting at Lake Skaneatles. Corey’s Best Bird of the Weekend was a bird that has frustrated him for quite some time now.

Where Are You Birding This First Weekend of November 2014?

Keep your eyes to the skies for vultures circling for fresh meat. Do you think vultures find zombies confusing? This Friday brings a macabre parade of little monsters to those parts of the world that celebrate Halloween. The following day comes El Dia de los Muertos. Both holidays can be fun, but neither are particularly birdy unless you count sexy Halloween birds. Since I’ve been working weekends, I haven’t had much luck hustling up interesting bird sightings.

We’re a little slow to discuss this weekend’s birding because many of us in the U.S. are still enjoying a beautiful Memorial Day. But if you’re eager to share the spoils of your recent avian adventures, let the bird bragging commence! While I saw some pretty special species this weekend, the most special was the Gray Catbird because my sweet 7-year niece totally got into finding one; I think I’ve found the next generation birder in the family!

Best Bird of the Weekend (Third of May 2014)

10,000 Birds

We birders seem to keep our own arcane calendar, with weeks and months symbolized not by numbers but rather by avian avatars. Each phenological totem evokes the confluence of time, climate, and geography that tells a richer story of a place than simply its position relative to the sun. Most North American birders I know would definitely represent the month of May with a bright and sprightly wood-warbler, though the argument about which bird would best serve would be epic indeed.

Where Are You Birding This First Weekend of September 2014?

American fashion dictates that we retire our white shoes and frocks once the sun sets on Labor Day. Most blame snooty millionaires and sloppy September weather for the changes, but we birders know better. Fall migrants are on the wing, which brings the teeming multitudes of avian observers out in force. What’s the connection? Easy… good birders don’t wear white !

Less than two weeks into the new year and I’m already used to writing 2014 instead of 2013. That must be a new record! This weekend, I took time to appreciate the sight of ten American Robins congregating in a leafless tree. The use of the robin as a symbol for spring seems inapt considering how beautiful those rust red breasts appear in the gray of winter.

Best Bird of the Weekend (First of March 2014)

10,000 Birds

Some may consider talking about the weather banal, but I can’t help complaining during a winter like this. While March earns a reputation for coming in like a lion, the season rarely seems as wild and cold as Winter Storm Titan threatens to be over the next few days in the American Northeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic. Seriously, if this continues into migration, the birds are all going to fly back south.
