During his international big year, he has recorded sightings of well over 5,000 bird species, breaking the world record for species seen in one year, which was 4,341. Noah has documented his trip in his blog, Birding Without Borders, hosted by National Audubon. Check it out at His blog reflects the intellect, humor, creativity, curiosity, stamina, and deep love of nature that he brought to this project.

Noah is a friend to many in the local community and is active in LCAS. He has led bird walks, presented at our Program Meetings, and has served as a Eugene Christmas Bird Count team leader. During his trip he has connected with birders around the globe, both directly while birding and through his blog.

We all look forward to seeing Noah’s final species count, reading the book he plans to write, and hearing him speak about his truly great adventure. Congratulations, Noah!
