First half of the year checklist [Jun. 28th, 2014|05:37 pm]
E.G.
[Tags|]

On November 19th last year, i started using eBird to log my bird observation at the water feature at my workplace. Sometime this spring i even started counting the birds. I'm not trying to be particularly precise in my IDs: you'll see "gulls" and "ducks" listed. So, i may make some observations on Monday, but i thought i'd just go ahead and call it "half a year" and look at the data. I estimate the maximum number of checklists to be 26 weeks*3 days a week * 2 morning & evening = 156 checklists.  So, i make checklists better than 50% of the time, as there have been more weeks where i'm in the office less than three days than there have been weeks where i go in more than that.

I am all caught up with the data entry, whee!

If your list were put together at our local pond, then a lot of birds would be the same. We would not often get the ruddy duck, though they land in other areas in our region, and the hooded merganser would be a real migration find. The scaup here would be lesser scaup only. The only plover at our pond would be the killdeer. We would have green heron in the Spring, as well as perhaps great egret. We'd also have barn swallow and purple martin. Always, we'd have northern mockingbirds and common grackles, and in the Summer, cardinals,western kingbirds and scissor-tailed flycatchers. Among the ducks we'd get gadwalls. I love black phoebes--our locals are eastern only, and our particular pond lacks them.

It's cool to read what you see there. Great that you are keeping it so steadily. I should start a similar list.

It really is very nice to have the record: the reporting does make it quite nice.

I don't stand around that long, so i know i miss birds like mockingbirds or robins or sparrows. Some time, i will get ambitious about the gulls!
