The 300 Club

In order to get into the 300 Club, you must observe 300 different species of bird in the state of Connecticut in one calendar year.  This is an achievement which only 5 other birders have done (all of them with a lot of free time, a car, and were not in school).  Yesterday morning, I did just that, but ironically, I don’t know what my 300th bird was!  I refound the “Western” Flycatcher in Branford yesterday, but the species (either Pacific-slope or Cordilleran) is still undetermined.  Fortunately, DNA samples from the birds poop was collected and will soon reveal exactly what species it is.  I’ll add photos later.
