Several weeks back, after we got wind that Fred Weber has set the all-time Celery Farm Big Year, we asked Fred and several other top birders to share their Celery Farm Big Year checklists with us, to form something of an on-line archive of these amazing documents.
John Workman, having recently awakened from a winter's slumber, finally shared his 2006 Big Year list with us -- 172 species.
John not only lists the birds he recorded, but he includes a drawing and a list of "almosts."
It is unclear whether it has been notarized, which could be a problem in years to come. We hope not.
