BIGBY, which stands for Big Green Big Year, is a newly developed idea in birding. BIGBY is similar to a normal Big Year that many birders participate in, but with BIGBY, the only means of transportation are things like bikes, walking, canoes, etc., hence the green part in the name.
I decided to add up the list of birds I have seen within walking distance from my house this year, and came up to a total of 145. I also had a Big Green Big Day, which was my Big Sit day where I found 70 species in my yard (you can read about that here: http://baypoll.blogspot.com/2009/10/big-sit-kunkletown-kingbirds.html)
Happy (almost) New Year!
