My biggest milestone this year birding-wise was to have finally reached 300 birds on my life list. What made it even more awesome for me was that I got my 300th bird The Black Redstart in Como Italy. On our trip to Europe I logged over 30 new life birds.

My next milestone thanks to my wonderful wife Nery, yesterday we reached 3000 hits on this blog. I have had hits from every state in the US and so many countries around the world, on all of the continents except Antarctica.
My thanks to Nery for spreading the word and my thanks to all of you for taking time to look at my Birding Blog.
If you are not a birder I hope it has helped you have a greater appreciation for the important roles birds play in our world and for their beauty.
