Lists from nine countries have been shared this month with Cuba appearing for the first time. With Corey’s February jollies to The Bahamas (when he should have been at home looking for GGOs), Lichtenstein, Austria and Switzerland our country/province/principality/kingdom/territory list has swollen to 37.
79 checklists were contributed for 624 birds during March and bring the running total for 2017 to 1162 (retrospectively up-dated to 108, 693 and 1189 respectively). The lifetime list reaches 2747.
The monthly rosette was on its way to Corey for his Great Gray Owl, until it was pointed out that Donna had pinched that coveted tick during February (See, Corey…? You should have forgone the Bahamas!).
Every share, regardless of its content, adds depth and texture to the picture. So the accolades for March go to Donna while the dirty looks are directed at Mike who has admitted, in print, that he has been birding this month but has come over all faint around the share button.
