May 17 - Day 1 of GGI Birdathon - upstate portion

A fuller account of out Great Gull Island Birdathon will have to wait until we get some rest. But a couple of highlights: Friday night at the motel in Wurtsboro there was a power failure due to the rains (presumably). The motel had a generator so there were emergency lights on, but Sean and I had to make the sandwiches for the next day with the use of headlamps.

Things got better after the above. Saturday was easily out best first day ever for us on the birdathon. We had a total of 138 species including 27 warblers. More in a couple of days when time and rest allows.
