Birdathon 2018:
with Wayne Wauligman and Jerry Lippert
6:00 am to 4:55 pm
Boone Cliffs, Oxbow wetlands, Lost Bridge & Shawnee Lookout, Miami Whitewater, Fernald

We found 121 species in 24 hours, and we were able to officially count 120*, ending in a tie for 4th place team.

Pledges per species or donations for wetlands preservation should be made through the Oxbow Inc website (or contact me).

(* 95% of species count must be seen or heard by all team members - we found 114 that we all saw or heard, 7 that were seen or heard by less than all 3 team members).

Winners had 147, 2nd place 146, 3rd place 122.

5 pm - 11:30 pm:
