It’s true! In 2015 I will try to crush the worldwide Big Year record: My goal is to see 5,000 species of birds between January 1 and December 31. (The current, official record is 4,341.)
To do this, I’ll be traveling through about 30 countries, on all seven continents, on one continuous round-the-world trip. Along the way, I’ll connect with local birders who can help with logistics and birdfinding.
Well, I’m stoked! I have signed a contract with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to write a book after this adventure is finished, and, throughout next year, I will be posting to a dedicated blog on the National Audubon Society’s website.
Stay tuned for updates – January is less than three months away…
