First post of many

Hey Folks,
My name is Alex Stark and I am from Prairie du Chien. Like many of you, I am also doing a BIGBY this year! Thanks to Jesse Ellis, I just found out about this blog. I'm still trying to figure out how I can use this site to compare and also share my BIGBY list with all you and your lists. Any help that you guys can offer is really appreciated!

On the birding side of things I just scored my BIGBY Forster's Tern. However I am really looking forward to the next two weeks....

It was a big morning out there today! Zillions of birds across the Madison area, probably because of good migration conditions and an early-morning T-storm. Picked up most of my warblers for the year for BIGBY, and a number of expected passerines.

I have a question - I saw a Brewster's Warbler, and that species is on the BIGBY list, so I checked it off. Is this legit? Was this "unit" counted last year?
