In addition to competing with other Big Sit Teams, we were in competition with another Seminole Audubon Society team (Seminole Stilt-porch Sitters). The pressure was crushing. We creamed them with number of individuals (216 to their 81), but they beat us by a feather on the number of species (26 to our 25). We are already planning (the menu) for next year when we are confident the Long Shadow Birder will fly ahead of those porch sitters.
