Overall I'm somewhere near 360 if you include "foreign" birds (from a very minimal effort in T&T).
If I hit 375 overall I'll be more than thrilled... but the real aim is 350 ABA birds by 11:59 12/31/08. If not... I hope to get the rest on the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) on 1/1/2008 in Oneida County.
This effort will not come without some effort... already planned attempts include:
Wednesday/Thursday: Rochester, NH wtp for Thayer's Gull, Iceland Gull, and Glaucous Gull
Friday: 2 locations in Maine for Harlequin Duck
Saturday: Great Bay, NH - CBC - hopefully a few of the following: Eastern Screech Owl, White Winged Crossbills, Greater Scaup, Canvasback, King Eider, Eurasian Wigeon, Northern Shrike, Black Scoter...
Sunday: Isles of Shoals CBC - hopefully a Kittewake and some alcids: Dovekie, Razorbill, Murres, etc.
Monday - 12/22 - Nothing - drive home
Tuesday - 12/23 - Local Syracuse Birding
Wednesday 12/24- Thursday 12/26 - Christmas Break (ok - Birding from the car and in the backyard)
12/27 - Rochester, NY Birding including Montezuma NWR
12/28-12/31 - TBD but expected stops include Beaver Lake in B-ville, wtp's in NY, and wherever the birding listserv's report awesomeness!!!
1/1/2008 - Oneida County CBC
Birding over break in January: Syracuse Area Waterfowl count and birding with my father
And since I'm all about internal motivation - I'm aiming to see 150+ species over break... The list will be effective at 12:30 on Thursday (after my last final).
So wish me luck!!!!
