      Hi,

      It will be "Game On!" regarding the Kern Birdiest count starting at
      3:30pm this afternoon. There has been excellent response thus far
      with many other participants no doubt responding when they submit
      their lists of species seen through 3:30pm this Sunday, May 5th.

      Anyone who is willing is asked to send me a list of species detected
      after 3:30pm today, Thursday, so they can be included in the first
      species update planned to be sent out pre-dawn tomorrow, Friday morning.

      Following are am and pm time periods for selected birding areas when
      coverage is currently known and not known. These are all areas that
      could stand sustained coverage as many mornings and afternoons as possible.
