missing the neotropics
... a whopping 1 to my Buenos Aires list... I could probably get out to the local spots more, there have been at least 10 or so possible ticks reported over the year that I know of and I've not gone after any of them.
Having read through this thread, then written the above, I became newly motivated for local listing/birding. I started paying more attention to bird reports. I have visited a couple of parks and stakeouts that I'd never gotten around to. I've been target birding at the main reserves more. And most importantly I have just gotten out a lot more.
The result thus far is 9 new birds for my Buenos Aires list in 3 weeks, quite a bit of bicycling to get around, and a couple new neighborhoods seen!
Unfortunately I've now gotten through the handful of stakeouts and the lowest hanging fruit, and it's going to be harder going from here.
