Big Year

I've seen 860 species of birds in China over a span of 24 years.  And photographed more than 500 species.

In my "Big Year", my objective was to find and photograph 365 species.

This was achieved on June 11th (just in time to watch the football World Cup of that year).

Here's how it was done (the photos of all of the 365 species are within the reports).
