While I was pelagic birding in California with Debi Shearwater in September, one of the birders on board was John Vanderpoel, who is pursuing a "Big Year" this year.  To date John has amassed 733 North American species for 2011, good for second place on the all-time list behind Sandy Komito's Big Year, which was the inspiration for the recent movie. John has chronicled his year on his web site http://www.bigyear2011.com/ in great detail and with good humor, and it makes for fun (and quite instructive) reading.
