Interesting, Ken. Feb 16 starts the 12th season for the Hildene Monthly Surveys (Manchester, VT). With 132 surveys we have tallied 165 species. Come join our group at 8 a.m. at the Visitor's Center if you are around the Banana Belt on Sat. It would be interesting to compare lists. Must be a way to do that in ebird???!
