The 2016 Listers Corner is now up and available for viewing! From Yard Lists to Big Days, there’s something for every birder.
Highlights, you ask? Here are a few to whet your appetite:
- First, the 400 Club has expanded from one birder to three, as both David Johnson and Joel Greenberg attained the magic number of species seen in the state.
- Andy Sigler continues to rack up “closed-out” species; that is, species seen in every one of Illinois’ 102 counties!
- Big Years continue to be in the news, with a record-tying nine birders identifying 310 or more species during 2016.
- Local birding continues to soar in popularity, with a number of records set in the County Lists categories.
Special thanks go out to the Listers Corner Committee, who compiled all the information: Joe Lill (Chair), Mike Madsen, and Jim Mountjoy.
We’re already looking forward to seeing what transpires in 2017!
