A new effort to generate some friendly competition among birders while saving fuel and raising awareness about carbon emissions and resulting climate change is being known as "Bigbying". This is not only wise, but fun! See more about it at this link. Read more about my southeastern Wisconsin Bigby efforts in future posts. I'll never reach the number of species found by birders doing a more typical "big year", but I'll bet I'm going to have just as much fun as they do.
