Big Day (Bird Race)

Big Day Statistics:

Because I give birding tours at James Campbell N.W.R., I've been able to keep track of new migrants coming and where they like to hang out.  Also with some scouting of Makakilo and a little luck, I was able to get a decent count.  I still had to run up some trails to get a few species like Elepaio, Apapane, and Amakiki.  And the staked out Killdeer and Black Francolin helped along with a lucky Brown Noddy.  Still a Oahu record could be broken as long as James Campbell has its regular migrants.
