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
