100 Birds in 4 Days

One of my new year's resolution this year was to observe at least 100 bird species a month (research grade observations), as detailed in my previous journal post (https://www.inaturalist.org/journal/muddphoto/70269-thank-you). Thankfully, I've been able to hit this goal (which is not super difficult as my home location grants me easy access to many diverse bird habitats) every month of the year, and so 1 of the things I track to make it more interesting is how long does it take to get to 100 bird species observations. Previously, the fastest I've gotten to 100 was in May, where I was able to do it in 5 days (although in my mind this month always had an * since I spent the first day of the month in Southern California which made it much easier to get to 100). Today, when I woke up and checked I-nat I was at 73 bird species for the month and started to think, maybe, just maybe, I can get a new personal record and get to 100 bird species observed in 4 days...I just needed 27 more observations. So I went for it, drove south and north along the coast (thanks to hybrid work week 'working from home' for making this possible), visited elkhorn slough, wilder ranch state park, natural bridges state park and Swanton Berry farm and was able to get 101 bird species observations at the time of writing this post. Again I will like to thank all the people that take time out of their busy lives to ID my photos (special shoutouts to @burtosa @feathered @roomthily @david99 @guyincognito). I've enjoyed the journey and looking forward to observing more bird species in California and on my travels.
