Greenwich Big Day!!!!

Fairfield County, CT

sunny 80 °F


This morning, the alarm was set for 1:30am after a rather sleepless night of excitement in anticipation for the GREENWICH BIG DAY! This is a day Will S looks forward to every spring and I was so excited to take part this year along with Skyler who I met last year on Fisher Island.

For today’s report, I will write an extremely abbreviated version with a couple non-bird-photos on this blog and include a link to a much more detailed report on eBird.org, written by Will and photos by yours truly, with all species covered in order to give a wider scope of what was accomplished today.

Skylar, Will, and I teamed up today to break the Greenwich, CT big day record (122 species, set by Will himself!). Our methods of birding were diverse — by car, foot, and by sea — it was an absolutely lovely day to be out on the water and out birding anywhere really! Here are a few photos from my favorite part of the day: a motorboat ride to the offshore islands of Greenwich!

And a “Great Horned Owl” from the Audubon center:

A huge thanks to Will for organizing this, hosting me last night, and driving me around. Read the full report and checklist here on eBird to see how we fared on our exhilarating big day!! Would we break 122 species? Read on and find out next!!

Good birding,
