I’ve been really busy these last two weeks as I continue toward my twin goals of identifying at least 300 species within our wonderful Garden State and raising funds for the New Jersey Audubon Citizen Science program. However, I want to take a moment and catch you up on where I was at the end of April.
So here we go – the first four months by the numbers:
Bird Species Identified – 247 (up from 187 species at the end of March)
Miles Traveled – 5075 (I had traveled 3720 miles by the end of March, so April was really busy!)
Counties Birded – 16 (Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Salem, Somerset, and Sussex)
Days Birded – 67 (out of 120 days)
Checklists Submitted to eBird – 171
I continue to make progress toward my goal of raising $10,000 for NJA Citizen Science, but I still need your help if I am going to be successful. Please consider making your pledge today!
This year’s spring migration stumbled out of the gate; however, birding during the last week and a half has been really amazing and May is shaping up to be a banner month.
My citizen science activities have also ramped up during May and I’ll be blogging more about those outings soon.
Until next time…..Good Birding,
