The summer is certainly in full swing and the migration is in the rear view mirror. We thought that is might be interesting to benchmark a window of breeding birds each year going forward. The Birdtrax widget on our home page documents all sightings on the Trail in the past two weeks. For the period June 21st through July 4th, there were 138 species. For that same period last year, there were 117 which is certainly a reflection of the increased ebirding activity. We are all collectively painting a much more accurate picture for science.
