  1. I’m doing a neighborhood big year, in the neighborhood where I work. It’s a 23,000 acre foothills community north of Eagle/Boise Idaho. As of right now I am at 33 species. I have goal to see 175, even though we only have 157 on the list of birds seen since 2007. There is a lot of unexplored territory as it pertains to birding and the list of probably and very possible birds is over 200. My goal is to spend an hour each work day birding, plus a Saturday or two each month.
