There is a new record to beat in a USA-based birding big year! One of the contenders for surpassing the previous ABA record of 749 bird species is written up in a recent article on a Cape Cod based NPR website. It’s an interesting summary of Christian Hagenlocher’s goals for his epic big year. See his website for loads of information on why he undertook this project and what he hopes to accomplish. Congrats, man, and cheers to more awesome birding in 2017!
