I've been tallying the numbers from the Christmas Bird Count that was held on New Year's Day. We're going to unveil the numbers at the Zoom meeting on Monday. Until then, here is a teaser.
- *181 people participated*, breaking the previous record of 165 from 2017 - Participants walked *315 miles* in 305 hours, and spent another *94 *hours birding from the car, and *21 *owling - We had *88 species* on the day, and at this point have 4 count week species, one of which is new for the count - *15 species had record highs*, and two tied the previous record high. We've never broken so many records before! - *No record lows or big misses*, although a few species were much lower than we have been used to in recent years
