What happens when Noah attempts to bird for 24 straight hours? #NoahsBigYear

We’ve been getting up early and staying up late anyway, so a big day wasn’t too much of a stretch. A team of ornithologists from Louisiana State University did a serious big day in this same area a few months ago and set a world record by finding 354 species of birds in 24 hours, so it seemed like a good opportunity to see a lot of birds in a hurry (I only have seven days in northern Peru, where birdwatchers usually spend two weeks, so I have to pack ‘em in!). We didn’t have much chance of beating that record today, given our lack of preparation (the LSU team spent two weeks scouting the route before their big day) and my unfamiliarity with Peruvian bird sounds, but it was fun to think we were following a world-record birding itinerary.
