  2. eBird: Get all of the eBird Hotspots in my 5-Mile Radius patch up to at least 50 species.
  3. eBird: Have at least 1 checklist a day and move my Complete checklists to over 3500.
  4. eBird: Complete all monthly challenges.
  5. eBird: Identify over 300 birds this year.
  6. iNat: Participate in the City Nature Challenge Sacramento Region with at least 1000 observations.
  7. iNat: Organize a Bioblitz for at least one day of the CNC.
  8. iNat: Observe at least 5 new mammal species this year.

I never thought about this kind of statement of goals. It's better than New Year's resolutions. Now you have me mulling over what I should be doing. Somehow I think I need to be a little more structured. :-/ All the best!

Peggy and I also discussed the resolution-v-goal question. It seems to me that goals are better, because you can make discernible progress even if you miss. So, @vermfly , if you get 990 observations on the CNC, it is not a failed resolution but a near goal.

I have generated my five-mile radius map. It includes some excellent parks.

@gyrrlfalcon I'm already off and running. I saw 60 species yesterday in a couple hours in the afternoon. Are you in the 5mr Facebook group? I posted my map there already.
