Day 16 Update--1000 Species Challenge

New species are found everywhere :-)
Today was the last full day of my parents's visit from Oregon, and I had to teach in the morning.  In the afternoon we went shopping and then had family activities.  I found very few new species, though Semipalmated Plover and Least Sandpiper were nice new birds for the month at Spruce Run.

Today was the first day since the first of the month that I have fallen behind the pace needed to reach 1000 species by the end of the month.  Since I don't really look for new species on Sundays (my Sabbath), I need to get roughly 39 new species each day for the rest of the month to reach the goal of 1000 species.  I have my work cut out for me!

Total species: 511
