>> Hi All,
>> As some are aware but others may not be John Weigel is doing an American big 
>> year in true Weigel fashion. He has not been home since late December and 
>> won't be until January 17. You can follow his blog here although at present 
>> it's simply a running list as his time is consumed by chasing rarities that 
>> has not stopped !
>> He hadn't published his list until several days ago and since doing so it's 
>> fair to say he has been slandered by his competition who wasn't aware John 
>> was doing the big year 2016 and Is perhaps caught a little by surprise. He 
>> has even had his sightings questioned! See here 
>> Johns previous Australian 'big years' have left no doubt about his 
>> credibility.  He photographed almost every single bird! He has done the same 
>> this year but has been unable to edit his 40,000 photographs and post them. 
>> He will in due course.
> The year is shaping up to be the stuff movies are made of!! He's also raising 
> funds for Devil Ark (Tasmanian devil breeding facility) throughout the year).
>> John is currently on the world famous Attu chasing Megas and cannot respond 
>> at present. I encourage Australian birders to follow the action and support 
>> John!
>> He is a great bloke and I trust this group will enjoy following and Aussie 
>> take it internationally!
>> All the best!
