Big Day (Bird Race)

28 August 2000

Kurt Pohlman & Harvey King

Big Day Statistics:

The morning started out with the usual species. Harvey was able to pick out a calling Erckel's Francolin during the morning chorus. Up at Aiea Ridge Trail, I was able to spot a Red Whiskered Bulbul, but it flew away before Harvey could see it. For some reason, we never saw another one which is a fairly common bird in this area.

The regular spots produced the usual species and the staked out Semipalmated Plover and Pectoral Sandpiper were present. Still there is room for improvement in this month.
