It is often heard, that remark that something is “over the top.”  Well, now it is certainly true of ace Oregon birder Noah Strycker.  He is now ace Global Birder.  He set out to try to see 5000 species in a single year.  As the days dwindle down he is nearing 6000.  Can he get there?  Click here to follow the final days of this extraordinary feat of birding, logistics and stamina.

Congrats, Noah.
