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!

Day 3 was full of spectacular views on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington. New birds for the year include Varied Thrush and American Dipper. Total is 518.

And today we had some new mammals for the trip–mountain goats!
