Viator's 2013 World List (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Yet another year list! This year will probably be a little lower than last year but we'll see what happens...

For comparison purposes I'll update this post with the number of species seen by country starting with the first year I started posting the list on BirdForum.

As of Dec 31 the total for 2013 stands at 857.

For comparison purposes:
China (inc HK)__________________2_____94____108_____243
New Zealand________________________________________75
