My Life List

***Last Updated: July 2017***


  • My Yard: 25


*eBird is used to keep track of my lists. The links above will take you to my eBird profile.*


I have enjoyed birding on and off for the past 10 years or so. One of the reasons that I enjoy the hobby is the feeling of adding to my life list and getting that check mark. Sports have always been a huge part of my life and I have always loved competing. For me, keeping lists adds a competitive spirit along with a feeling of accomplishment. And it’s just fun!


My lists have always been a disorganized mess. I have used multiple notebooks, excel spreadsheets and various accounts on eBird. My listing wasn’t very impressive either, just the normal Ohio birds and a few common species from different vacations.


To coordinate the start of  Bird Watching HQ, I have started a new eBird account and am going to hold myself accountable to submitting checklists. Essentially, I am starting my Life List again at 0!!! (For reference, this is December 2016.)
