It's not ideal, but for what it's worth:
SHORT NOTICE: The C & O count is ON, but with a change from a narrow one-day "snapshot" to a week's long + "panoramic" overview beginning on 1/27 and ending on 4 February. There will be NO SPECIFIC MILEAGE ASSIGNMENTS given. Duplicate counts will be expected for some miles and happily accepted. Counts may be, per e-bird standards, either "traveling" or "stationary." For "stationary" counts, birders should stand at the mileposts and count for a minimum of 20 minutes. In the event that there is a structure [the Brunswick water filtration plant comes to mind] at the milepost, the counter should move appropriately up or down stream and note that in the remarks. All counts to be posted to e-bird & SHARED with Jim Speicher [<jugornought...>; ebird username: jugornought], or Frank Boyle who together will endeavor to come up with a compilation.
Obviously, forward as appropriate.
