New Year, Different List
I have decided to notch down the Bigby this year to birds seen on foot from our house. Numenius and I walked into town (about 2.5 miles) with a couple of friends to see Slumdog Millionaire, but we saw a bunch of birds on the way. Here’s a list from today in order of birds seen or heard. I’m going to keep a running total in taxonomic order on the sidebar of Bird by Bird once I figure out what to do with my 2008 bike list.
I have a photo of a bird not-quite-sketch to upload which

Greater White-fronted Goose
Black-throated Gray Warbler (an excellent find for January, here)
Varied Thrush (in a large conifer near Border’s)
