Start 2021 off right! Have your own Big Year!
What is a big year? It’s whatever you want to make it! A big year is a personal challenge to identify, by sight or sound, as many bird species as possible in a year within a specific area. It could be in your yard, your town, your state, a particular park, whatever you want! Here are a few checklists to help you get started counting!
Grab your field guide and binoculars and get outside!
