“People often ask me how it is that I seem to be so much at peace. There is a primary reason — and it is available to all who wish to have it. Here’s a simple prerequisite to attaining peace at that level. I invite you to observe the beasts, birds and fish and let them teach you. Let this be a daily routine and life, as you know it, will never be the same.”

Day 342 - Hitting The Road, Again

Today I am getting ready for what is quite possibly my last road trip of the year.  I plan on spending a couple of days in the Santa Ynez Valley.  There have been a few birds hanging around up there that I would like to track down.  I also have a chance of seeing something very rare in Santa Barbara County - rain!

As the month is zipping by and I will be away for a week or so at Christmas the end of this adventure is rapidly approaching.  I feel this may be my last good chance to add a few birds to the year's list.

In other news, there are reports of a Tufted Duck being seen in Vermont, which puts their total up to 277 species.  This race remains close!

The Score: Vermont 277, Green Big Year 281

More later,
