I also saw a common scoter and a Pallas's rosefinch, which if accepted by the ABA, would both be first ABA area records (click on any photo to enlarge).
As for 2016, my friend Laura Keene is on Vancouver Island today beginning her full ABA area photographic big year. She was able to see the ABA code 4 redwing yesterday, and hopefully will see it again today. 1 other birder has declared that in 2016 he is doing a full ABA area big year--Olaf Danielson.
My next birding adventure will be a 10 day trip in February to San Blas and the Durango Highway in Mexico. I will be joined by 6 other birders who have birded with me often. Here's to a great year for birding in 2016.
