      Calbirders,
      In 2010 I fulfilled a long-time goal of doing a big year in California.
      The year ended with 444 species. In addition, I saw 16 non-countable
      species. I birded daily except for March through mid-June due to a
      work-induced hiatus.
      My non-birding friends found some aspects of my big year experience
      humorous, interesting and/or offensive, including:
      * over 32,000 miles driven in the State
      * 18 round-trip plane trips to Northern California from LA
      * 5 unsuccessful trips from LA to Newberry Springs to look for Common
      Grackle (I eventually got a different bird in LA)
      * 2 trips / 4 mostly rainy days spent looking for Brown Shrike
      * 14 unsuccessful trips to La Mirada Creek Park to look for
      Dusky-capped Flycatcher (I got it on my 15th trip. I have no plans to
      ever visit LMCP again.)
      * 4 unsuccessful trips to look for the Pyrrhuloxia

      I missed 65 of the 499 countable species reported in eBird this year,
      including some common species:
      * Sooty Grouse
      * 14 pelagic species
      * California Condor
      * Barred Owl
      * Northern Saw-whet Owl
      * Gray Vireo
      * Pine Grosbeak
      I was left with a new appreciation for the heroic effort of the Howes in
      their record big year. I also developed a strong belief that eBird is
      an important and powerful tool for capturing status and distribution
      data. I believe we are just scratching the surface of what that
      database will eventually become. BirdsEye was a great tool for planning
      trips using eBird data.
      Thanks to the many birders who report in eBird or the listservs, and to
      those who provided generous help!
      Below is a list of the birds I observed during the year. Feel free to
      contact me offline if you have any questions or if you would like to
      flame me for my use of fossil fuels.
