Bird Lister's Corner is an opportunity for PAFN club members to list their most recent total number of Life birds in four recognized categories. It is a great opportunity for club members to share in some friendly competition and to watch and measure your own progress over the upcoming months and years.

The four categories include:

Pembroke Circle (50 km circle) Pembroke Count Circle

Ontario (anywhere in the province of Ontario)

North America (ABA area-Canada and the United States including Alaska but excluding Hawaii).

ABA website ABA 2011 checklist

World - Includes all bird species from anywhere in the world including the ABA area. Must not include duplicates- a Mallard is a Mallard no matter what country. If there are any doubts, Latin names of the two birds must be compared. For example the Northern Gannet is not the same as the Gannet in Europe (two different Latin names).

To register, just forward your total life bird number for each of the categories and your best new lifer bird for each category and where you saw it to Ken Hooles at hooles@bell.net ie: Pembroke Circle - 120 ( Rufous Hummingbird, etc. The list will be updated quarterly including the best new Lifer bird.

Congratulations to all of you who were able to add to their list this past winter.  Congrats to Susan Ellis for adding 56 bird species on a recent trip to Costa Rica and Ken Brown for 4 new species over the winter period.  It is interesting to note some of the new highlight birds like Pink-footed Goose, Red Cockaded Woodpecker, Montezuma Oropendula and Spotted Towhee.  Have a great spring count.
