Weather: Temp 31-64 F, SW winds 3-35 mph, clear skies

Location: Newton, KS

Time At Location: 0701

I counted until 12:15, took an hour break for lunch, and resumed counting at 1:15 PM. Lisa joined me in late afternoon.

I was surprised the number of species I could see over the day from my deck. It was a fun project that I intend to repeat in the future.
