Birdchaser BIGBY

Along with all the other birding fun I'm having this year, I've decided to throw my hat in the Big Green Big Year (BIGBY) ring and see how many species of birds I can see in 2008 while on foot from either my home or office. Since as of the start of 2008 my office yard list is only 121 species, and my home yard list is only 57 species, this may not be the biggest list in the world--but it will be another excuse to get out and take those daily walks that are so important for my (mental) health. I'll keep my BIGBY list posted here and update as needed.
