We birders like to keep lists, and I am no exception. I keep multiple lists myself, including but not limited to:
My all important Life List(ABA area)
My World List(species I've seen outside the ABA area)
A Yard List
A State List
as well as month lists, year lists, birding trip lists and vacation lists.
My Life List currently stands at 299 species.
I just found the bird list that my dad kept from our 2010 Hawaii trip and now I was finally able to create my World List! With 27 new species that I saw on the trip, my world list stands at 326. My 300th World Bird was the Common Waxbill. We saw a flock of 30+ on Oahu. Other excellent birds we saw included: White Tern, Hawaiian Coot, Red-tailed Tropicbird(one of my all time favorite birds!), Hawaiian Stilt, a very uncommon if not rare Christmas Shearwater and Melodious Laughingthrush. We were able to bird both the islands of Oahu and Maui. Unfortunately, as I was not big into bird photography at the time, I do not have any pictures to post from the trip. I do however have great memories.
