Because we can conduct this count with local birders or non-local birders that can do the count via a day trip, Lars and I feel we can do this safely. We are going to divide the circle into smaller sections that can be effectively birded by either one person or a birding couple. There will be no sharing of rides required, no birding in a group and no in-person countdown. We'll do the countdown via Zoom on the following evening so that people aren't pressured to get home and get their numbers together quickly. Yes, it'll be a different experience but I think we can do it safely and successfully.
Also, if any compiler is doing a count this year and wants your circle divided digitally and uploaded to an ArcGIS WebApp, I could probably help you with that, given enough time of course.
