Let's see how far I can make it before I forget. I probably won't be traveling, so these will all be close to home. I'm hoping to make it to 250 species. The photos will not all be top quality, but they will be identifiable!

Wow those European starlings really got around didn't they - I didn't realise they were in the US as well.  They are a real pest in southern Aus.  

 

Would love to see a cardinal one day - I know they are pretty common but they are quite stunning.  The tufted titmouse is a cutie

There is a single Belted Kingfisher in the UK at the moment, the 4th record I think. 

and we let you have lots of Starlings...is that a fair trade?

Great start, I love the Cardinal too. My first US bird,it was taking a bath in the stream in the woods, the Ramble I think,  in Central Park. What a lovely spot that was.

I love walking the Ramble. I haven't been to NYC in so long.

 I wouldn't think so, no. However! We do have a Steller's Sea Eagle at the moment. I don't think I'll be able to track it down, though.
