My Year in Birding 2012

10,000 Birds

Seeing 525 species was nice, as was the fact that I birded in four countries, nine of the fifty states in the United States, and fifty-one counties. I want to reach 500 birds in the ABA, get my Queens list to 295, see a total of at least 500 species, and get my World Life List to 1,100. Finally, my 2012 Year List easily exceeded the 500 species I had hoped to see. But how did I see so many species this year?
