Gulls in California – R. Cunningham
Bird Lister’s Corner is an opportunity for PAFN club members to list their most recent total number of Life birds in four recognized categories. It is a great opportunity for club members to share in some friendly competition and to watch and measure your own progress over the upcoming months and years.
The four categories include:
Pembroke Circle (50 km circle) Pembroke Count Circle
Ontario (anywhere in the province of Ontario)
North America (ABA area-Canada and the United States including Alaska but excluding Hawaii).
World – Includes all bird species from anywhere in the world including the ABA area. Must not include duplicates- a Mallard is a Mallard no matter what country. If there are any doubts, Latin names of the two birds must be compared. For example the Northern Gannet is not the same as the Gannet in Europe (two different Latin names).
To register, just forward your total life bird number for each of the categories and your best new lifer bird for each category and where you saw it to Ken Hooles at firstname.lastname@example.org
for example: Pembroke Circle – 120 ( Rufous Hummingbird, etc. The list will be updated quarterly including the best new Lifer bird.
