More Behind the Scenes at the GBBC #2

OK, the GBBC count is now up to 581 species. A good portion of the species that come in above that, will be the direct result of my bird-dogging birders and biologists to report additional sightings of unusual species this past weekend. I rounded up reports of Rufous-backed Robin, Violet-crowned Hummingbird, Elegant Trogon, and Lazuli Bunting from Arizona. Still trying to get more Hawaii sightings and some seabirds from Alaska. There may be a few more species to get in Texas, California, and Florida as well. Not sure how to round up a Lesser Prairie-Chicken report (its never been reported on the GBBC--ouch!). So, lots of fun emailing folks around the country trying to see what else we can come up with. Latest GBBC species totals are here, in case you want to see how high we can get the count.
