The Big Year is a 2011 comedy film starring Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson that tells the story of a real-life event that takes place worldwide annually where birders compete for the honor of spotting the most bird species in a 12 month period.  It's a tremendous undertaking that often involves travel throughout the planet in search of rare birds as well has common ones that may inhabit your backyard.  The film has sparked some new interest in the hobby of birdwatching and if you happen to be one of those who would like to give it a try you may want to get involved with the first Clatsop County Birdathon.
