I was reading a few E-bird Bio's and I saw where a birder in Baton Rouge was doing a Self-Propelled big year by bicycle and on foot from his home. I am curious how that turned out. I have a friend in Madison Wis who only birds by bicycle now. He and I did an unplanned big day by bicycle in mid-May in Madison Wis about 20 years ago. Independently we had both gone birding on our bikes and ran into each other in the UW Arboritum around 6:30 AM and birded the day. One good spot was the sewage treatment ponds about a 10 mile bike ride the from the Arb. We ended up with 119 species for the day. Beginning about 5 years ago, the Wisconsion Society of Ornithology started publishing year totals for Green Birding in addition to the regular year totals over a certain treshhold.
