Mappin' Texas

So far, 2016 has been very kind to my Texas list.  I've been there 3 times this year and because 2 of those were pretty in-depth trips, I've managed to score 82 state birds so far this year.

Also, Texas has now taken over my #2 spot for biggest state list.  That spot was held by Michigan, my longtime home state, but it was inevitable for a state like Texas to overtake it (and it's no surprise that California remains in my #1 spot).

Anyway, I went into openheatmap and created a map of Texas filled in with my eBird totals.  You can see that I now have county lists for 58 Texan counties... but that's only 23% of the counties in the state!  Clearly I have a lot more work in terms of spatial coverage!

Anyway, enjoy.
