GBBC Update--Feb 19

As of 1pm this afternoon, we have 41,072 checklists submitted to the Great Backyard Bird Count, up 40% from last year at this time. Still a long ways to go. We're also showing reports of 567 species (though some of those are actually species pairs or other non-species). Some of the more interesting reports--a huge flock of blackbirds and grackles reported in DE has raised eyebrows. Also 450,000 robins in Florida, where there is a huge winter roost this year.

And my very own favorite, after two years of trying, we've finally got a report of Lesser Prairie Chicken for the very first time on the count.

There are still a lot of species missing from the count. If you have seen a species not already reported for 2007 on this list, then make sure to report it online!

A few more hours to get out and count some birds. Have fun!
