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.
