Day 10: 1000 Species Challenge

Today I finally found a noteworthy wild bird at Spruce Run, a locally rare migrant Forester's Tern.  Also picked up an uncommon Cape May Warbler at my home, as well as a few other birds here and there.

The big boost to the monthly species list came this afternoon as I spent an hour picking up over 100 new species at a local Petco store--including a nice collection of corals and tropical fish.

I'm still behind adding some plants and moths, but meanwhile the species list climbs and I'm still ahead of schedule for the month, though the species will be getting harder to come by as I've now knocked out some big collections such as the species in the pet trade and served up for sale at the grocery store!
