Big Sit Update #3

Sunday, October 14, 2007
Sorry no photo with this post. There's no time.
We've tied the record of 65 species, but only have two hours daylight left to break it, by seeing species number 66.

Among the birds we could see to break it:
eastern phoebe, great blue heron, killdeer, Lincoln's sparrow, common yellowthroat, wood duck, peregrine falcon, merlin, Andean cock-of-the-rock...

If one of these birds is in your yard, please shoo it toward southeastern Ohio. Our future happiness and sense of accomplishment depends on it.

I did see an Andean cock-of-the-rock in my backyard this afternoon, but it was heading west. Sorry.

No phoebes yet? I thought you asked the one last week to stick around. I guess you can't you count the resident Red-headed Phoebe, can you?

OK We're dying out here. What was the final count?

I'll huff and I'll puff and blow the butter butt and phoebe down to you. Of course this is Monday so it won't help.
Sorry dude.

Well? Update?

Woops. I sent my Andean Cock-of-the-Rock to Cape May by mistake. My bad. <-- My fiancee hates when I say that. Can't wait for the finale! I got 25 species from my quasi-"indoor" big sit. Has an indoor big sit ever been done?
