Mallorca Bird Ringing

The Big Year has encouraged many people to go on the field like they had never done before and almost every day delighted us with some anecdote or rarity . With the entry of 2014 the appointments have stopped suddenly, although it seems that a Big Year 2014 is already underway.
2013 has been left to demonstrate the extraordinary wealth of birds that we have in Mallorca and has put It shows how little the island really is covered under normal conditions.

For my part, I have been relegated to the 23rd position. It seems like a failure, but I am really delighted because I have shown that a first-time parent of twins with only 1 and a half days of serious birding in 365 days and being somewhat attentive during everyday life you can see up to 168 species !! Great!

It is clear that with the Mallorca Big Year 2013 there is now a before and after in the ornithology of the island. Just a visit to the other blog in which I participate to see the rush of targeted oddities. I am without a doubt with the appointment of the American golden plover Pluvialis dominica, which if homologated will be the first for the Balearic Islands.

I leave you with a link of the best photos of the year of Juanjo Bazán. It's worth checking them out.

Happy 2014 late to all !! :)
