ABA-Area Bird Number 500!

10,000 Birds

I could try for a Painted Redstart showing up at Lacy Park in San Marino. The drive from Yorba Linda to San Marino in the pre-dawn darkness on the day after Christmas was drizzly. This post is old news to those who pay attention to what I say on Facebook but I am still pleased as punch to point out that I have finally reached the 500-bird milestone in the American Birding Association area (basically North America north of Mexico).

The ESPN Women + Sports Summit and the Global Ascendancy of Females

Eco Chic

Eco Chick was invited by Lexus to attend the ESPN Women + Sports Summit at the Dove Mountain Ritz Carlton in Tucson, Arizona this past October. The Summit brought together influencers and leaders in the world of women and sports, and it was an unforgettable experience. I met so many inspirational women, heard so many powerful stories, had the opportunity to test drive the new Lexus ES (in “eco drive”) and took away so much in a matter of three days.

Painted Redstart at Irvine Lake

10,000 Birds

In 2012 I got my 500th bird in the ABA area when I twitched a Painted Redstart at Lacy Park in San Marino, California. Back in December I was in Orange County, California, enjoying the holidays with my in-laws. I have been relatively negligent about having blogged about the birding I did while I was there so I thought I would try to rectify my lackadaisical attitude with a quick post about a quick twitch for a rather stunning bird.
