Pheasant Branch Conservancy's Top eBirders

I started entering my Pheasant Branch Conservancy birding checklists into eBird on January 1st, 2007. Last evening I completed my 1,000th eBird checklist for the conservancy. Naturally, this doesn't encompass all the times I've birded there. I started exploring the conservancy in the late 1980s and began documenting its avifauna in the early 1990s. Sadly, most of those records were lost during a move. Still, a dataset for a location spanning seven years and a thousand checklists is pretty impressive and in the process I've learned a lot about birds, bird identification, birding techniques, and people.

  1. I've only just started using eBird but it's a great tool, and I'm slowly building my checklists up :)
