Coming Tomorrow: Big Year Totals as of 09/30/12

Yikes! we are now three-quarters of the way IMG_4805through our first Meadowlands Big Year competition, and the results so far have been terrific. 

Many of you have said how surprised you are at the number of species you've seen in the district this year — far more than you would have predicted. We are posting the totals through Sept. 30 on Monday.

We also had great looks at a young Yellow-crowned Night Heron and tons of Yellow-rumps and Palms — but just one raptor, a Coop.

A big thank you to all who participated.

Will post the full list later in the week — more than 40 species in all.
