May 20 - Great Gull Island Birdathon - Day 1
It is 10:30 Saturday night. I have been up since 1:30 am (birding since 2:00 am). I have to get up again at 3:15 am for day 2 of the Birdathon (yes, I know we are crazy). Obviously, an actual report will have to wait. Our total for day 1 was 126 species (pending any hanging chads - but I think that number is pretty firm). That is a decent day 1 total, but probably not enough for us to set a personal record, though tomorrow will tell. In the meantime, here is the view at Bashakill Marsh this morning a few minutes before sun-up.
