I Cannot Believe It is December 1st……already.

By Timschreckengost @timshrek

Well, it’s December 1st and I am struggling to find time for birding as I am wrapping up my final semester as an Undergraduate student at Penn State. I have one more week of class and then a week of finals. That leaves me with two weeks for birding before the New Year. I reached my goal for Centre County, PA at 200 year birds. My goal for the year in the ABA area was 400 birds and I am sitting 339 species. I highly doubt that I can reach my goal of 400 birds unless someone sponsors me for a trip to south Texas. That would be awesome!, but highly unlikely.

As we gear up for one of the slowest months of birding, there are a few highlights coming up. Christmas Bird Counts are starting up over the next couple of weeks and of course the holiday traveling that comes with the Christmas season. Even though I will not reach my year goal of 400 species, I had a ton of fun this year birding in the southwest, Maine, and all over Pennsylvania with some great people. I also met a ton of great birders and good people in general as the year progressed.

So, as you finish out the last month of the year 2011, just have fun birding!
