Each year, I like to pick out the top five bird species that I would like to see the following year. For the past couple of years I’ve only found two out of my five targets but this year I found 3! I found Horned Guan, Great Blue Turaco, and Shoebill. You can read my post about my targets for 2016 here.\
Here are my targets for 2017:
- Great Gray Owl – I’m still on the hunt for this incredible owl in 2017.
- Harpy Eagle – Hoping to finally see this incredible bird of prey in Panama in January.
- Atlantic Puffin – Maybe this will be the year I get to see this wonderful seabird.
- Bridled Quail-Dove – This will be my target species when in St John in the US Virgin Islands this year.
- Gray-breasted Mountain-Toucan – This will be one of many targets on a trip to Peru this year!
What are your target birds to find in 2017?
