Hi all,

We had a pretty good count this year with 146 species (plus 2 sp.). I think that’s a record since I have been compiler (only 5 years). Highlights were the Snow Goose that lives here full time and the Trumpeter Swan that showed up in April and has stayed for quite a while. We also had a few lingering ducks and a patch of migrant warblers that brought up our total. My thanks to David Kidwell, Jared Fisher, and Scott Housten who added some great birds that I missed.
