Count dates: 1/26/19 thru 2/3/19
SPECIAL APPEAL TO DC/METRO BIRDERS The coverage gaps for Montgomery County are disappointing to say the least. Here's another way to break them out - maybe that will be the key to connecting to some one of you, or better yet, SEVERAL ONES OF YOU :)
We're 15 miles short of complete coverage in Montgomery County as follows: Milepost 6 to milepost 10; 4 miles Milepost 11 to milepost 14; 3 miles Milepost 18 to milepost 19; 1 mile Milepost 27 to milepost 29; 2 miles Milepost 32 to milepost 36; 4 miles Milepost 38 to milepost 39; 1 mile
UPDATED **RESERVED miles are shown just below. Coverage is shown for birders using the eBird "travelling" protocol, referencing the START and END mileposts [#/#] with gaps indicated by a semicolon [;].
Miles by county: DC 0/3 MONTCO 3/6; 10/11; 14/18; 19/27; 29/32; 36/38 FREDCO 39/58 WASHCO 58/77; 79/88; 95/98; 99/101 ALLEG 156/163; 171/173; 183/canal terminus
To decode the above, for the "MONTCO 29/32; 36/38" entry, a towpath section in Montgomery County from milepost 29 to milepost 38 has been reserved with the exception of a GAP of FOUR MILES between mileposts 32 and 36. In addition the mile [mile 39] following milepost 38 is available.
Re reserving miles: REPLY with particulars in the following manner: I will bird from START milepost # to END milepost #.
**RESERVED miles - see *Q & *A section in the FIRST link...
Next update will be 01/18/19.
