Alaska Wrap-up

My Big Year is over.  What began at Falls Creek State Natural Area in Minnesota on June 13, 2012 ended at my house in Washington state on June 12, 2013.  My official tally is 647 species of birds – a few short of my goal of 650 (I was hoping to add about five species on my cancelled trip to Gambell).  But  this was the only possible measure by which my year fell short.  In all other ways, it exceeded my hopes and expectations.  I will be writing more about my thoughts and observations about the year in general later on this summer, but for now here is my Alaska wrap-up report.

Miles by car: 1802

Miles by bus (Denali): 95

Miles by boat (multiple trips): 30

Miles by foot: 25

Number of new Big Year birds seen: 23

Total species seen: 123

Number of moose I had to swerve to avoid on a four-lane road 5 minutes from the Anchorage airport: 1

Number of glaciers seen: 7

Number of new arch-nemeses/birding friends: 1

Hans and Neil

Coolest mammal seen: Lynx

Reason I did not get a picture of the coolest mammal: I was too busy sitting there with my mouth open, thinking “That is the most ENORMOUS bobcat I’ve ever seen!”

Coolest birds: Tie between Willow Ptarmigan:

Rarest bird: White Wagtail (photo by Neil Hayward)

Bird that I have a new appreciation for: Red-throated Loon (photo by Neil Hayward)

Red-throated Loon by Neil Hayward

In Washington we mostly see them while they are in their winter basic plumage, so it was a treat to get to see them in all of their high breeding splendor.

Coolest Experience: Visiting the many seabird breeding colonies around Seward and Homer by boat, getting very close to thousands of nesting puffins, murres, and kittiwakes.  Here is a quick video I took of Gull Island near Homer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8sUJIJgwy4.

Quirkiest Town: Nome

Abandoned Railway

Subway Movie Theater

Velvet in pickup by Neil Hayward

There aren’t many towns in the U.S. with abandoned railway cars sinking into the tundra, a combo Subway/movie theater, and a caribou named Velvet who rides around in the back of a pickup.

On the whole, Alaska was an amazing experience.  I will definitely be back!

Coming soon, a post that attempts to answer the question many people have asked me recently: ‘After visiting all of those great schools and interesting teachers throughout the U.S., what did you learn about the state of education/effective schools/good teaching?’

Big Bend and Arizona Wrap-Up

I’m back at SeaTac International Airport, getting ready to board my flight to Anchorage.  Which means if I’m going to do a wrap-up post for my last trip, I’d better make it snappy.  Here’s a quick one…

Miles by car: 1881

Miles by car over crappy mountain roads: 80

Miles by foot: 40 (approx)

Number of species seen: 128

New Birds for my Big Year: 15

Total Species Seen Since June of 2012: 624

Probability that I will hit my goal of 650 before my Big Year ends: 57.2%

Number of Stomach Flu Viruses in my gut during the AZ portion of my trip: 8,954,000,000

Coolest “Plain” bird: Juniper Titmouse

Coolest Abundant Bird: Ash-throated Flycatcher

Coolest “non-bird”: endangered Ramsey Canyon Leopard Frog

Place I never get tired of visiting: Cave Creek Canyon, AZ

Roughest Road: Tie – Road to Christmas Mountain Oasis and Carr Canyon Rd (pictured below)

Bird that wouldn’t give me the time of day: Miller Canyon’s Spotted Owl

Bird that was most “in my face”: Rock Wren

One of the only birds worth an 11-hour drive followed by an 11-mile hike: Colima Warbler

As I mentioned, I’m off to Alaska this morning – my very last trip of the year.  I’m a little nervous about this trip, as it’s my first trip to the 49th State, and I don’t really know much about birding Alaska.  I know where I’m staying almost every night, but my plans for what to do each day are still a little up in the air.  I found packing for this trip challenging too, as I’ll be gone for 15 days and need to be prepared for temperatures ranging from 25 F to 85 F.  Apparently spring is late arriving this year up there, and some roads that I was planning on using are still snowed in.  I’ll try to post some updates and photos when I get to a place that has good internet connectivity.  Whatever happens, there will surely be good stories to tell.

Florida Wrap-Up

I’m sitting at SeaTac International Airport, waiting for a flight to Tucson.  Which makes me think I should hurry up and write a short wrap-up post for my trip to Florida.

White Ibis

Overall, south Florida was a terrific experience.  There are some things I don’t love about the area: the obnoxious drivers, the vast urban sprawl, and the crazy tolling system.  But there is much to love about this beautiful flatland of swamps, beaches, marsh, and lowland forests.

Miles by car: 1757

Miles by ship: 150

Miles by ship in rough seas: 148

Miles by foot: 35 (approx)

Total species seen: 140

New Big Year Birds Added: 30

Florida boosted me up over the 600 species mark!  I’m currently at 609 official ticks.  When I started my Big Year last June, it took me just 2 days to see my first 100 species, and only another week to reach 200.  It took 2 more months to reach 400, and almost 4 months after that to reach 500.  Even in the midst of spring migration, it has taken me 4.5 additional months to top 600.  Now I have exactly one month left in my year, and we’ll see how many more I can pick up before the end.  My base goal is 650 (looks somewhat promising), and my “stretch” goal is 675 (don’t think I’m going to make that one).

Scrubbiest looking bird: Florida Scrub-Jay (note the bands on its leg)

Florida Scrub Jay

Scrubbiest looking landscape: Florida scrublands

Most Unusual Birding Location: the University of Miami (found my only Spot-Breasted Oriole there, right outside the campus radio station and bookstore)

U of Miami

Ugliest Looking Lighthouse: Sanibel Island Light (Point Ybel Lighthouse)

Ugly lighthouse

Shortest Lighthouse: Garden Key Lighthouse at Fort Jefferson

Most Majestic Lighthouse: Loggerhead Key Light

Dirtiest my car has gotten: On the road to Bear Lake Trail in the Everglades

Most Pleasing Sunrise: In a Slash Pine forest in SW Florida

Coolest Non-bird Critters: Horseshoe Crabs at Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge

Place I most want to return with my family: the Dry Tortugas

Fort at Sunset

Scariest Signs: Flood Signs at Ding Darling NWR, indicating that the 100-year flood level is 13.2 feet above sea level, in a place where the entire island (Sanibel) is only 2 feet above sea level.  Yikes!

Weirdest Sign: Gopher Tortoise Crossing

Gopher Tortoise Crossing

Apparently those tortoises look kind of like Gumby!

Stupidest Sign:

Gate May Be Closed

That’s the thing about gates: they can be open OR closed.  A gate that doesn’t open is called a fence.  A gate that doesn’t close is called a hole in the fence.

Most delightful group of birders stuck ever to get seasick on a trip to the Tortugas:

Part of Group at Loggerhead

Thanks, Florida!  I’ll be back some day….

LighthousesAs for now, I’m headed to Tucson, renting a car, and driving across Arizona and New Mexico on my way to west Texas.  I hope to be in Big Bend National Park tomorrow for my most strenuous physical challenge of my year so far, and a rendezvous with a rare warbler.

Spring Texas Wrap-Up and Yankee Bobbytraps

Texas flowers

My second visit to Texas during my Big Year is in the books.  I will return to the Lone Star State in May for a brief excursion to Big Bend National Park.  But until then, here is my trip wrap-up.

Miles by car: 2206 (3rd-most behind Minnesota/Wisconsin/Michigan and Summer California/Arizona)

Miles by foot: 40 (approx)

Total species seen: 230 (a new record for my Big Year trips!)

New Big Year Birds added: 34 (I’m currently at 579 total since I started on June 12, 2012 – it may be possible for me to break 600 in the next 2 weeks)

Total number of individual birds seen during my April Texas trip (according to my eBird summary): 5380 (approx)

Highlights: Attwater’s Prairie Chicken, Black and Yellow Rails, Elf Owl, finally seeing Aplomado Falcon, and birding in Louisiana for the very first time

Favorite Duck: Black-bellied Whistling Duck

Black-bellied Whistling Duck

Coolest Thing to Just Sit and Watch: The heron rookery at High Island’s Smith Oaks, where hundreds of Great and Snowy Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills, and Neotropic Cormorants are showing off their spectacular nuptial plumage, courting, mating, bellowing, building nests, incubating eggs, and generally carrying on and creating quite a show.

Rookery

Bird that would be outrageously cool if it were rare instead of incredibly abundant, or if it were less annoying (perhaps if it didn’t get together with 750 of its friends and white-wash your car with poop while you go in to the grocery store for ten minutes): Great-tailed Grackle

Best Yankee Booby-trap: The Container of Not Sweet Tea at a Houston area restaurant

Yankee Boobytrap

This one might require a little explanation if you haven’t spent a lot of time in the South.  In order to understand what’s going on here, you need to know three important details: 1) No self-respecting Southern drinks unsweetened tea.  It just isn’t done.  2) Most Southerners don’t hate Yankees, but they don’t really like ’em that much either.  3)  To Yankees, Sweet Tea may sound like an two word phrase with an adjective and a noun, like ‘green shirt’ – but it isn’t.  Sweet Tea may have two words, but it describes one single, specific thing – like cotton candy or Kansas City.

Looking at the picture above, a Yankee might take this to mean that the container on the right dispenses sweetened tea, and the one on the left unsweetened tea.  A Southerner knows better.  The one on the right dispenses Sweet Tea, and who the heck knows what’s in the other one – but it sure ain’t Sweet Tea.  It might be radiator fluid.  It would be like labeling one container ‘water’ and the other one ‘not water.’

I concluded that the ‘Not Sweet Tea’ container must be a booby-trap for unsuspecting Yankees.  I watched this beverage station for a good 30 minutes while I ate lunch.  Seventeen people came to get Sweet Tea, but no one tried the ‘Not Sweet Tea.’  I had a Diet Coke.

Provided the FAA doesn’t furlough my air traffic controllers, I’ll be on the red-eye to Fort Lauderdale on Wednesday for 12 days in South Florida.

Texas Wrap-Up and Silly Signs

Little Blue Heron

My February trip to Texas was a success, and I am now enjoying some time at home.  Here is my customary end-of-trip report:

Miles by car: 1799

Miles by foot: 20 (approx)

Total species seen: 169

New Big Year Birds added: 40 (I’m currently at 544 total since I started on June 12, 2012)

Total number of individual birds seen last week (according to my eBird summary): 3560 (approx)

Highlights: Red-cockaded Woodpeckers, Audubon’s Oriole, Common Pauraque, Whooping Cranes, Flammulated Owl

Rarest bird: Bronzed Kingfisher (see photo below)

Bronzed Kingfisher

Nosiest Neighbor: The guy who kept peering over the fence the whole time I was at the Valley Nature Center

Nosy Neighbor

Scariest Thing I Saw: Chachalacas racing out of the forest at me, screaming “Chachalaca!”

Chachalaca

Scariest Thing I Saw if I Were a Minnow: A flotilla of 80+ Horned Grebes swimming in close formation at the Texas City Dike

Eared Grebe Flotilla

Most Ridiculous Sign: You decide.  Here are some contenders:

Watch for Pelicans

Ok, I’m in bumper-to-bumper traffic on a narrow bridge with a concrete barrier to my left and traffic cones on my right.  How precisely should I react if I see a pelican coming at me at 45 miles an hour?

Pronto Insurance

I’ve never really contemplated the strength of a chorizo stain before…

Chacha Crossing

I know enough to stay out of their way!

Beware Sign

Agapanthus, eh?

Agapanthus sign

And that’s the news for now.  I’ll be mostly around the Pacific Northwest for the next 6 weeks or so, until I begin my Spring of Absolute Craziness: a 10-week period in which I’m traveling to Florida (including the Everglades, Keys, and Dry Tortugas), back to Texas, back to Arizona, back to Texas again (Big Bend!), and wrapping up my Big Year the first week of June in Alaska.  Stay tuned….

January in the Southwest Wrap Up

I’m finally back from Arizona and California (for the second time!).  This was my last scheduled trip to California, but I’m hoping to hit Arizona one more time in late April or early May.  Despite some absolutely frigid weather, I had an outstanding trip.

Rugged AZ

Here are some stats from my 8 days in the Central Valley of California and southern Arizona:

Miles by car: 1887

Miles by foot: 25 (approx)

Total species seen: 197

New Year Birds added: 37

Total number of individual birds seen (according to my eBird summary): 8900+ (approx)

Highlights: Nutting’s Flycatcher, Tufted Duck, and two Rufous-capped Warblers

Most painful accidental hug: this 200 year-old saguaro

Large Saguaro

Bird that played “hardest to get”: Le Conte’s Thrasher – I spent almost 4 hours over the course of 2 days looking for it, before finding this one teed up in a mesquite tree.

Le Contes Thrasher

Least Impressive Guinness Book Record Holder: Parker Dam, the “Deepest Dam in the World” at 320 feet.  When I got to the dam, I was like “What?!  That’s not 320 feet!”

Parker Dam

Turns out that 240 feet of the 320-foot “deep” dam are sunk below the riverbed, and another several dozen feet are covered in water.  The exposed part looks kinda wimpy, actually.  A dam disappointment.

Biggest Oops: Thinking that this young first-winter Chipping Sparrow might really be a Clay-colored Sparrow.

Young Chipping Sparrow

The fact that Clay-colored Sparrows don’t winter in Arizona should have been my first clue.

Best sunrise-on-the-rocks: Bill Williams River National Wildlife Refuge (below)

Western AZ at sunrise

I finished my trip with exactly 500 species seen since I started back in June of 2012.  I’m hoping for 150 to 200 more by the time I’m done less than five months from now.  Next up: some well-deserved time in Washington state with my family, followed by a trip to Texas in early February.

More Than Halfway: Stats and List

As 2012 winds down here on the West Coast of North America, I have spent a little time looking at numbers from my big year effort.  As all traditional ‘big years’ run January through December, birders all over are taking stock tonight of the year that was and getting ready to start fresh tomorrow.  I’m just a little more than halfway done, and getting ready to shift into high gear.

Start Date: June 14, 2012

Number of days elapsed: 200 (55% of the year)

Number of checklists submitted to eBird: 201

Number of those checklists that include Great Blue Heron: 48  (24%)

Total number of species seen: 460

Number of species seen in my home state of Washington: 236

Number of states I’ve birded: 12

Number of counties I’ve birded: 55

Total number of individual birds seen: 28,762 (sum from eBird – some larger numbers were estimates)

Number of blog posts: 50

Projected End Date: June 13, 2013

Number of days to go: 165 (45% – about five and a half months)

Number of new species needed to reach my goal of 650: 190

Probability of reaching my goal: 77.2%

I will try to append a list of the species seen so far in taxonomic order below:
