In 1998, Greg zig-zagged 130,000 miles across the USA, while trying to hold down a full-time job, aspiring to reach at least 700 species of birds in one calendar year. "The Big Year," a novel by Mark Obmascik detailed his travails alongside two competitors. The book was later turned into a movie of the same title that starred Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson!

Today is the first day of the 10th of 11 one-week tours I am doing with Wildside Nature Tours. We picked up folks at the Philadelphia Airport today and we birded our way along the Delaware River (and yes, we passed the place where George Washington crossed it). I do not have much to say tonight as my eyelids are just about shut. I’d prop them open with toothpicks, but I doubt it would keep me awake even if my eyes were open. <grin>


I will share the bird list tomorrow night. Until then, you can enjoy another shot of John Roebling Park (Trenton Marsh) near Trenton, New Jersey.
