Well, I’m still hanging in there. I’m not sure how many more weeks I’ll make it, but it's day 28 of the Bird-A-Day Challenge (find out more about the contest here and see my updated list below.) Thanks for the support, all you birders out there. I’m having a blast sharing the adventure with you and hearing about all the great birds that you’re seeing from day to day. Keep checking back and posting your birds here on The Perch as well as on Audubon Magazine’s Facebook page.
Happy Birding!
