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.

  1. Hi Joe,
    It's Evelyn - yikes, I missed all mention of this! I'm getting on record as pledging you 20c per bird under 100 and 50c per bird over 100 (which it looks like you've already done!) And a $20 bonus if you get to 200. Good luck today! - Evelyn
