Notes:
Weather perfect for watchers, too nice for birds. Very little bird activity, no birds migrating or just moving around. New species this year were sanderlings, cedar waxwings and sharp-tailed grouse.

Anecdotes:
We beat our 2008 record of 35 species when it rained or drizzled all day long! Mosquitoes and gnats were out. Also, monarchs and red admiral were flying.
