A big thanks to everyone who helped in this year’s count. We had 34 participants out in 12 teams so had good coverage of the circle. Team members spent a combined 92 hours covering over 15 miles on foot, 445 miles by vehicle and 20 miles by boat.

We ended with a tally of 128 species and over 89,000 individual birds including over 40,000 gulls at the landfill. We also added a previously never reported Franklin’s Gull to the circle list.

Great job everyone. Hope to see you all again next year.
