For those of you who bird in Addison County ...
I was cross-checking three lists this afternoon — Vermont eBird reports of passerines in Addison County so far in 2011, Vermont eBird reports of passerines in Addison County from 2000 to 2010, and VCE’s Vermont Bird Checklist — and noted that there are only eleven species of passerines that were reported in the county during the last decade that have not yet been reported this year:
Also, there are only four species of passerines that are on the state list that have not been reported in Addison County (at least, not since 2000):
If you are looking for some birding challenges that will add to Addison County’s 2011 list for the County Bird Quest, why not consider targeting some of these?
I haven’t done the cross-check for the non-passerines, but will try to get to it sometime this coming week.
