Well, I really don't know yet how big this year is going to be, but a visit to Sri Lanka in January/February definitely gave me a flying start. First visit to an Asian country so lots of the birds were completely new to me.

8. - Yellow Bittern; dark surroundings, but even at iso 4000 the 7DII and the 100-400II performed well. I'm very happy with the combo!
