The Five Mile Radius

How to keep a 5MR of your own:

1. Draw a 5-mile radius around your home (try this tool)
2. Count all the birds inside it.

It helps a lot to make a patch on eBird that includes all the hotspots and personal locations that are in your radius.

I have a mixture of habitats as well as a mixture of states as my radius creeps over the Columbia River into Portland, OR.  Hotspots include Broughton Beach, Mays Lake (my old patch!), Wintler Park, Meadowbrook Marsh Park, Burnt Bridge Creek Trail East, Arnold Park, Columbia Springs Fish Hatchery (Biddle Lake), and lots of other small parks.

As of January 1, 2018 I had seen 161 species within my radius.  Here are my birds:
