With 6 months under our belts, we started 2012. We had over 50 birds on our "life list" and thought that was pretty good. At this writing (December 2012), we have over 150 birds.

We added a new place to spot birds - Columbia Bottom Conservation Area. It's the one of the best places we've found so far. Its habitats include rivers, fields, agricultural fields & forest. It's a fine place for a family to go.

After a few months of other interests, Nick is back on track, watching birds. He's added a new layer to the whole birding experience - he now draws birds too. He is, of course, still our main bird identifier.

This block represents July of 2012. This is how many new birds we saw in July 2012. Why? Did we loose interest? Were we busy vacationing?

No. Here in the St. Louis area, we had (mostly in July) 11 days above 105º. We had 16 days above 100º. So the birds weren't out (we checked) and neither were we.
