Hi Everyone:

We had a record-breaking year of 68 species! Well done!!

The final number of species for the winter months of December, January, and February was the same number as for the last update on Feb. 25. This is 7 species more than for the previous record of 61 in the winter of 2011-12.

We almost reached the 70 species mark with a sighting by Jim of what could possibly have been a Northern Pintail, and another by Ken of a possible Eastern Towhee. However, in both cases they were able to get only quick looks at the birds in flight with no chance of getting identifying photos or more detailed descriptions for conclusive confirmations. Unfortunately, neither bird was sighted again.

Just think; there are now only eight-and-a-half months to go before the beginning of our next try on December 1, 2015! I hope you can all wait that long!

Thanks to all for the reports.

Dave
