2000th observation December 23rd 2017

Well this was a very Merry Christmas indeed; I got a lot of good stuff for Christmas that I could use out in the field but the best thing I was able to get this year was my goal. I was able to go to a new park on the day before Christmas Eve. Bob Eden park is a very nice park out in the Mid-cities area in Euless. The park is right on Little Bear Creek (I think) it is a place I would like to go back to to look for Odonata life forms. Anyway I was able to see over the goal I had set. I got up to 2005 observations at that park. I love the park; it was not that big but it had a lot to offer. The place is wooded with the creek and then there is a residential area in the back near the play ground. I saw a bunch of birds and another Parasitic Wasp. my 2000th observation was a little Tufted Titmouse; It was not what I was expecting to be number 2000 but heck anything goes I guess. I was able to make it over 2000 this year. Next year I am going to try to get to 4000 hopefully. That will all depend though on how much I get out and what all I see. I can assure you though I am going to try to get over 1000 species next year. I am up 767 species so far from the last few weeks of observations. However I may not get much more done this year on the account that I caught a cold or something so no birding for me until I mend and get better. I had a good year this year and what a year it was. I was able to spend more time in the woods then ever before. I had more days to observe stuff. I was even able to do a lot more volunteer work. I went on quite a few bioblitzes this year too. My life list has truly exploded this year. have over 500 observations that have been fully IDed. I sure had a lot of fun this year now it is time to have even more iNaturalist in the New Year. 2018 is going to be filled with even more observations and species I can feel it in my gut. I am hoping to go to the bridge in Austin with the Bats soon so maybe I might get my first bat observation soon. I can only imagine what lies in store for me. I can only say that I will meet every new thing with much enthusiasm as I did this year. I am always finding new ways to love what I find. I am hoping to find even more birds and insects in the new year. I need to find some new explorartion areas and need to up my game. I am thinking about getting a tripod for my camera so I can take more photos without the crazy hand shaking when I am in the wind. I am also wanting to start taking more videos and stuff. I have a few new tricks ton use in the new year. I am not done with this yet; but from the looks of it I may never want to be done using this site. I love it too dang much. I wish all of you a happy New Year and a nature filled 2018. This is Zachary Chapman AKA Galactic_bug_man signing off.

I think a tufted titmouse is a wonderful 2000th observation. :)

Great job this year Zach -- you've seen some really excellent things and I've enjoyed watching those observations come in.

You need to also check out your 2017 stats: https://www.inaturalist.org/stats/2017 -- then scroll down to view your 2017 stats. The numbers may be a tiny bit off, but they'll still be way impressive! Excellent job, Zach.

Thank you Sam; by the way I did check out the stats I was quite the busy beaver this year. I love the stats and data I collected the year. Never a dull moment.
