YOUR TURN: Photo Big Days

“On April 21, 2014, at 9:28 a.m., in Angelina National Forest, Texas, a team of dedicated birder/photographers armed themselves with cameras and headed out to set a new North American record for the number of species of birds photographed in a 24-hour period.”

That’s how Scott Whittle and Tom Stephenson begin the tale of their “Photo Big Day” in the October 2014 issue of Birder’s Guide to Listing & Taxonomy. Joined by Cameron Cox and Sam Galick, they attempted and succeed to set a new record!

You can read the extended online-only version of the article (for free) by clicking on the image below. It contains a play-by-play of their big day effort that you won’t find in the printed magazine. If, after reading the article, you have a question for the authors, please leave it in the comment field, below. I courage you to offer any other comments, as well. Have you also done a photo big day? Please share your experience with us. Birder’s Guide welcomes your input!
