    Paul's 2024 World List

    The Merlin birdpack is an excellent resource for this. I was in Colorado Monday-Tuesday and as I moved around it could quickly tell me what I'm likely to see - in order of probability - and then you can remove the ones on your lifelist and highlight the lifers. An amazing resource.

    Paul's 2024 World List

    I'm very impressed Paul. I got to bird in and around Bangkok in March for a day (with a guide) and a half (myself) and only got 104 species. But it was absolutely magnificent - and I was very happy to see two spoon-billed sandpipers, as well as a load of other lifers.
