eBird Target Species Add Fun To Common Birds

 As I mentioned before, finding foy (first of year) birds for your year list adds a little excitement to seeing some of the more common birds in your area.I spent a little time walking around the border of the old brownstone quarries.
I try to make a habit of entering my local bird sightings on eBird. Under the explore button of eBird there is a link called target species hich allows you to generate a list of birds that you haven't recorded yet for the year.You can also generate a wish list of birds you have never seen in your lifetime.I use it to keep track of county birds. It made this common Song Sparrow a real prize for the day!
