Everywhere Is A Birding Hotspot In January

 For those of us who keep a list of birds, January is an excellent month. As you start your fresh list each January 1st, every place you go becomes a birding hotspot.
Each bird you see becomes the first of the year. That means even your local park is filled with brand new species for your year list. 

Some may wonder "why bother keeping a list of birds?". If you think about it all we need to survive is food and shelter. Everything else is just about using our senses and sense of purpose to entertain or fulfill ourselves in some way.
So in January every bird counts whether it be an eagle, a mockingbird, or even the unpopular European Starling.
