Tom Reed breaks NJ “Big Year” Record

NJO contributor Tom Reed has now seen 343 different species of birds in the state of New Jersey since January 1st, 2011.  This is already 6 more than the previous record, set in 2002, but only 1 more than the number currently seen by another 2011 lister.  That means Tom has to keep searching for the next three months – the competition doesn’t end until the clock strikes midnight on December 31st.

Tom was recently featured on http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/ – check out the article and Tom’s insightful quotes on birding by clicking here.

This NJO article reflects the updated counts for the two 2011 listers – both have seen new species since the writing of the linked article.
