2012 Big Year
The Goal: to log at least 350 species within the confines of the Lower Texas Coast portion of the Great Texas Wildlife Trail Map (with a business trip to Corpus Christi).
The Purpose: To help raise funds for Peyton Behrens' battle against leukemia.
Peyton "jumps the gun" to the delight of the other Cancer Survivor Relay participants!
How you can help: If you'd like to pledge so much per bird, just e-mail me and let me know how much you'd like to pledge, and whether or not you'd like me to post your name on this blog! Then sit back and watch the show for the rest of the year, and come December 31st, I'll calculate your total pledge and direct you to the special account set up for Peyton's medical bills. (You can see it even now on his Facebook page linked here!)

The following links lead to the index pages for each month, from where each you can click on the link for each outing, which provides a full narrative along with photos and sound recordings. I'll be keeping a running tally of the species with each trip narrative. People have asked about a spreadsheet, so here's a PDF version of the Excel spreadsheet I'm keeping.
