In the Belly of the GBBC Beast #4

OK, you can go to to see how we are doing half way through the Great Backyard Bird Count. But what you can't find is right here--the top 5 states reporting by percent of expected species. And the winners, so far, are:

1. West Virginia (57/65) --88%
2. Tennessee (103/120) --86%
3. Pennsylvania (96/123) --78%
4. Mississippi (103/134) --77%
5. Texas (275/358) --77%

There's still lots of time to head out and find more birds, or to just count them in your yard. So far, we've counted over 1 million individuals of 489 species.

As of 7pm tonight, here are the states that have submitted the most checklists:
1. New York --584
2. Pennsylvania --502
3. North Carolina --501
4. Virginia --470
5. Texas --469

Most of the technical problems seem to have been cleared up today, and I didn't get m any complaints.

One thing that has been amazing this year, has been all the bird photos submitted to the GBBC. Literally thousands are pouring in...more than we can use, but we've selected some great ones to look at here.

So, get a good night's sleep, and if the weather permits (don't hurt yourself), go out and help us find more birds tomorrow.
