Lynn Barbers’ Record Breaking Alaska Big Year
at the BP Energy Center – 7:00 PM
Lynn Barber holds the record for the tenth highest North American Big Year total ever. When she found 723 birds in 2008, it was the highest Big Year total ever for a woman. She set the Texas Big Year all-time record (522 species) in 2005, she found 350 species in one year in South Dakota, and this year she has already smashed all existing records for an Alaska Big Year by finding 299 species thus far (as of October 9, 2016, 307 species to round out the year).
