Date: 11/21/20 5:21 am From: Bob Barnes <bbarnes...> Subject: [kerncobirding] Nov 21 UPDATE: 200 Kern Species for Nov 2020
The quest to have 200+ bird species eBirded for a single month of November for Kern County continues. If you haven’t entered your contribution(s) yet, please do so as eBird shows 181 species entered now with a known backlog of enough species (including some of the following) to get us close to/at/over 200 and show up in the eBird database when entered and processed.
Reported since the last update were CACKLING GOOSE (Brenda Kyle & Ken Kyle), COMMON GROUND-DOVE (Bob Barnes), RED-THROATED LOON (Susan Steele), WESTERN SCREECH-OWL (Bill Haas), PILEATED WOODPECKER (Susan Steele), HUTTON’S VIREO (Susan Steele), CLARK’S NUTCRACKER (Bob Barnes), WRENTIT (Steve Summers), GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET (Susan Steele), PYGMY NUTHATCH (Bob Barnes), BROWN CREEPER (Susan Steele), PACIFIC WREN (Susan Steele), AMERICAN DIPPER (Bob Barnes), SAGE THRASHER (Bill Haas), TOWNSEND’S SOLITAIRE (Susan Steele), YELLOW WARBLER (Dane Fagundes), CLAY-COLORED SPARROW (Bill Haas), WHITE-THROATED SPARROW (Kelli Levinson), RUFOUS-CROWNED SPARROW (Susan Steele), YELLOW WARBLER (Dane Fagundes),...
Below are the two lists of species still remaining to be possibly found and reported to eBird for November 2020. Help us get to and past 200 to put this puppy fully to bed.
