"100 Birds ... 2018"
The Goal:    In January 2018 we decided to see IF we could get to 100 bird species and HOW FAST would it take us. We stayed within a 50-mile radius of the Portland/Vancouver area and we took time out for dog training and NFL playoff games. It took us 15 days to break 100. On January 15th, during a trip to Sauvie Island, we picked up three new species, giving us 102 birds. Our goal then morphed into - can we also reach 100 birds photographed ??? ... On January 28th, during a trip to Woodland Bottoms, we photographed our 100th and 101st birds. We ended January with 109 species seen and 104 species photographed !!! ... Cameras used: Nikon P900 and Canon Rebel, 200z w/1.4, and digiscoped images with Nikon S9700.

January 1-15:    The big rush ... we headed out 14 of those 15 days ... we broke 100 on January 15th with hearing the California Quail being our 100th bird ... all but one of those days was overcast and slightly damp, with maybe a couple hours of sun breaks.
January 16-21:    No birding at all due to dog shows.
January 22-31:    We relaxed in "searching" and instead went out in the same areas to see if we could reach 100 birds photographed ... while we did pick up seven new birds, the goal was to photograph or IMPROVE upon photographs of the "100 Birds". We reached that goal on January 28th during a trip to Woodland Bottoms. ... weather was rainy for most of this time and and we even spent time at home ... ended the month with 109 birds seen and 104 birds photographed.


109 birds found ... 104 birds photographed
