CV Big Year Final Report
- First of all, sorry about the cross-posting.
Well, barring any unforeseen additions, our big year netted 316 total
species http://www.stanislausbirds.org/BY2004/cvby-species-seen.htm Ed
Pandolfino came the closest with his guess of 315 species when the event
began. I have two favors to ask of birders that are somewhat familiar with
the birds of the Central Valley.
1. Please go to an online survey and answer the two questions I have
there. One asks you to select your top 10 picks for the rarest birds seen
during the event and the other question asks you to pick the top 10 biggest
misses during the event. There is a password to enter to complete the
survey; the password is "birding" without the quotes.
2. For those folks that feel like taking a minute to add to a birding
blog, I have created one about the big year. Feel free to add any comments
about the event, species you observed, unusual experiences, etc.
It was a lot of fun!
P.S. The final participant totals will be announced at the CV Symposium. The
250 level was reached.
