2017 Bird Images

10,000 Birds

For the last several years, I have produced a small run of calendars for my fiends and family. The best 12 images of the previous year. As simple as that might sound, over the course of a full year, I will shoot more than 20,000 photos, While that seems like a lot, it works out to about 400 per weekend, if I were to be in the field 50 of 52 weekends of the year. Some of the locations I shoot at, 400 is a quiet day.

For 2017, in keeping with all the top businesses, the list will be refreshed and re-branded.

But that isn’t tough enough for 10,000 Birds readers: no, we have to make things a bit more, shall we say, diabolical? Yes, that’s right, it is time once again for a diabolical identification quiz on 10,000 Birds!

Collaborative List – May 2017

10,000 Birds

May saw eBird’s Global Big Day, a collaborative effort that puts our humble endeavours in the shade. Our beats were out waving their binoculars around, contributing to the 50,000 checklists submitted and boosting the total which exceeded 6,500 species. It may be possible to find out how many species the beats found on the big day but, quite frankly, life is too short. Actually, I might admit to a twinge of jealousy that I didn’t get 50,000 checklists to play with.

10,000 Birds

Weatherwise around the world, this last weekend of September delivered a sneak preview of what each of us will likely enjoy or endure over the six months. We’re not fully into winter or summer yet, but the scent is in the air. Most of the birds you see these days, however, won’t be sticking around long, so take advantage while you can! On my nature rambles this weekend, I ran into a couple of White-crowned Sparrows.

Can a family-focused trip—even to one of the world’s most biodiverse countries—deliver enough opportunities for avian observation to satisfy this serious world birder? If you have kids, you’re probably as curious as I was. The short answer, I’m happy to report, is a resounding yes. With enough planning, you can enjoy a family-friendly, bird-rich vacation in the Panama Canal zone. LODGING.
