‘Big Year’ record topples; not-so-big-year going strong

Posted on 5 CommentsPosted in feathered

For those of you that didn’t hear: the Australian ‘Big Year’ record was officially broken at the end of 2012. John Weigel has annihilated his predecessors, seeing 745 species of bird in Australia in a single year, beating the previous record of 720 set by Sean Dooley in 2002. Just let that sink in for a moment. Seven hundred and forty five different bird species.
Seen by one man.
In one year.
